The reason I suggested this dual solution is that this is how the FSF
does it, although I'm not saying it's perfect. And while it is a bit
more maintenance, it seems like it offers the most benefits for both
sides. The foundation gets to protect everything that people are willing
to give it, and people who are unwilling to assign the copyright bear
the brunt of any infringements personally.

What's the flaw with this, again? I must've missed it.
