We are happy to change the license as needed. The CC license is mostly a 
holdover from the exercises that were originally written and then 
retooled into the more generic "documentation", and I don't think anyone 
thought too much about the implication of its use. But, let me chat it 
over with the folks who did the exercise and docs.

The link JJL sent is quite handy.
