Interesting, I had never this vision of a piece of ODD as "software", but spec. Maybe it depends on which side you look at literate programming.
@John: you should look at the rest of the thread and at the arguments for a basic attribution oriented license (BSD or CC-BY).

And for what it's worth, I think there should be one licensing scheme for all the TEI IP.  I'd favor LGPL.  Creative Commons seems more oriented to content, and  I think our core product is actually software--because it's all ODD-driven--but that's a conversation we should have.
