That seems very premature. Best wait until

1) It is a common-license
2) debian-legal has vetted it

Personally, I have to wonder if this type of thing is DFSG-free:

  If you publish printed copies of the Document numbering more than 100,
  and the Document's license notice requires Cover Texts, you must enclose
  the copies in covers that carry, clearly and legibly, all these Cover Texts:
  Front-Cover Texts on the front cover, and Back-Cover Texts on the back
  cover. Both covers must also clearly and legibly identify you as the
  publisher of these copies. The front cover must present the full title with
  all words of the title equally prominent and visible. You may add other
  material on the covers in addition. 

That seems to be a clear restriction on use.

It also allows documents placed under the licence to be composed at least
partially of text you may not modify.
