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...
