MIDI file dual-licensed (GPL + Creative Commons) ok?


Crimson Fields includes a *.mid file which has the following license:

License for the soundtrack

Quite simply, you have two choices. The music, as distributed with
Crimson Fields, is covered under the GNU General Public License, same
version(s) as the game itself. If you choose to separate the music from
the game without using it in other software, the GNU General Public
License is likely not to provide the level of protection the music
requires. This is because the GPL was written for software,
specifically, and there are other, better licenses to choose for content
such as music. Therefore, if you separate the music from the software,
you may also choose the Creative Commons license described below. It is
recommended that you do so, because otherwise you may find yourself with
the GPL unenforceable on the music, and you will have no license for the
music otherwise.

I _think_ that should be ok, just wanted to make sure.
