[1] I don't think you understand what "public domain" means.

[2] Here, you're talking about a specific clause of a specific license --
this directly contradicts what you said you were asking about earlier
(and the concept expressed in the subject line).

[3] You didn't say anything about rereleases in your "this is not really
a license but it's a license anyways" proposal.

If you put contradictory terms into a license, you can't really predict
how a court would interpret it.
