Well... You are a Lawyer. :-) Sorry, couldn't resist. :-)

Could you send your drafts to the list with some criticism of your
own? And, please, could you explain why you chose GPL and not GFDL? 

OpenContent licenses are good for companies, but I don't think they
are good for LDP. And I agree with David where he said that new
authors shouldn't worry with licenses. I want to write, to work, and
not to worry if the license I chose will forbid *ME*, the author, to
donate my work to another person to use in his document, book, guide,
HOWTO, whatever.
