Something akin to GPL's "or later" clause? Perhaps.

I don't consider this as a "problem" per se, so I don't think we need to put
much effort in these things. Licenses evolve; documents too. Eventually,
old(er) documents will be replaced with newer ones anyhow. And it is not
that the 2.5 license has a major issue for us - it's just that 3.0 is
somewhat newer and used on the wiki.
