Uhm, I do not like the "applies to all pages old and new" part of above: 
Only new pages makes sense: I believe the only possible ways to change 
license is for each wiki page either

 a) _all_ page authors agree on a license (mojority is not enough)
 b) page is removed (and first author of replacement page license that)

The only discussion I can imagine sensibly leading to imposing license 
on all _old_ content is a discussion where _all_ copyright holders were 
present and _all_ agreed unanimously to relicense.  If that was the 
case, I see no need for this kind of announcement, so am puzzled...
