Sadly, Creative Commons (as an organisation) seems to lack
the transparency of Software in the Public Interest or Free
Software Foundation Europe. I don't know whether you already
know some of the details from the contact so far. For example,
are we dealing with their board of directors or their technical
advisory board or others? How do they make decisions?
I think this is necessary to brief people about who is talking
to who and why.

It would prevent a CC-licensed work being included in a
biography, in the absence of other permission. I hope
that makes it clearer. I don't know whether this example
is worthy of inclusion.
