I doubt that you'd be able to come up with a ``one size almost fits
all'' license.

I think GPL is one extreme in which many organizations may be

I think that a BSD/X/Apache style license is another with which even

I think it would be great if OSI could endorse a license of each of
these types to hold up as examples, and for organizations to adopt.
