I agree with you, Lachlan - multiple licenses should be supported for documents. And in an ideal scenario, each object within the container document should be assigned an independent license at the discretion of the author/artist (the text being an object within the container document).

We discussed this yesterday at #rdcHQ Hacker Wednesday.
