Simon, I'm not clear how to interpret your first PDF reference above. If 
I understand correctly, all the Open Source Software licenses, and 
public domain documents, can be incorporated into a CC-By and CC-By-SA 
licensed documents. GPL, LGPL, MPL can be included into CC-By-SA documents.

Is that your interpretation?

If that interpretation is correct, then I expect that the majority of 
our Project Overview source documentation, if not all of it, would be 
fine to be included into Project Overviews.
