Any license can be mixed with any other license, as far as you the author are
concerned.  You can say things like "If your surname begins with A-M, you
are licensed under the GPL; if it begins with N-Z you are licensed under the
BSD; if it is not written in Latin script you are licensed under the MPL."
Silly, but no problem.

You just have to make sure that any contributions you get from others are
also licensed under this same license.
