So that people are free to re-use it? If we do not licence it
then it is a copyright work and they are not free to republish or
make certain sorts of derivative works without seeking permission.
I assume what you really mean is why aren't we just licensing it
CC0 and being done with it? I assume because, as Laurent
suggests, we want Attribution of some sort.
