We already have such requirements in the Manifesto:


   Anyone may copy and distribute (sell or give away) LDP documents (or
   other LDP works) in any media and/or format. No fees are required to
   be paid to the authors. It is not required that the documents be
   modifiable, but it is encouraged.
   You can come up with your own license terms that satisfy these
   conditions, or you can use a previously prepared license. The LDP has
   a boilerplate license that you can use if you wish. Some people like
   to use the [17]GPL, while others write their own. There is a project
   underway to create a special GPL license just for documents and this
   may turn out to be a good choice.
   The copyright for each document should be in the name of the principal
   authors. "The Linux Documentation Project" isn't a formal entity and
   thus can't be used as a copyright owner.
In my opinion, it's not bad the way it is.  I don't think changes
should be made unless there is a very compelling reason to do so.
