Packaging text licenses

Hi all,

Yesterday, I was looking for the CC-BY license text to start a new project.

I had to dig up to CreativeCommons's github repository to find the text
version. (I didn't want to copy/paste the HTML version on their website).

My question to you is: "Would it be interesting for others if I were to
create a package with missing text version of licenses?"

Currently, in debian, we have the /usr/share/common-licenses/ that
includes a couple of one, but is missing CC- and MIT for instance.
I would find it useful to just cp the file to new projects.

@debian-legal: How text license are qualified regarding their licenses?
Can 'legal text' can be considered as public domain and packaged with
whatever license (MIT/GPL) ?
