One thing that I am getting from Mia's argument is that CC is having
difficulty actually identifying people who would benefit from a parallel
distribution clause. She has stated that she is not aware of a
substantial segment of developers who would incorporate CC-licensed
material into products which require DRM (e.g., free software console
game developers). 

Can we get some examples, or at least a plausible use case which we can
put forward to CC? If we keep talking about hypotheticals, I think we're
less likely to be heard.
