I asked... him? about it.  Since you have been doing the page, I thought to
leave it up to you.  If there is no danger of the site area going away, we

I might not be in the popular thought here, but I would prefer to see them
Public Domain'd.  The reason?  If they are installed in a page that isn't 
licensed the same, They would need attribution on every page (or in the
gif) of who owns the copyright... atleast technically.  Also, licenses
really have to be policed to keep them valid.  If someone can point out to
a license that you knew was being violated and didn't do something about
it, it makes your case for upholding the copyright harder (this exists for
all Intellectual Property).  If the art is public domain'd, it removes any
need to keep track of who's keeping the license.
