I don’t think that works as a wizard, and the analysis of licenses on that site is pretty high level (i.e., I’m not sure it would tell you, say, the differences between the multiple “weak copyleft” licenses on the OSI list so that one could decide which one might be best for one’s particular project – which is what I think Larry was suggesting might be helpful).

But I think that at some point it would be helpful for there to be a resource for people to sift through all the licenses on the list to understand what they do and don’t do.

Isn’t that exactly what https://tldrlegal.com does?  They even have the OSI-approved ones marked and sorted by popularity (as determined by eyeballs on their site):  https://tldrlegal.com/licenses/tags/OSI-Approved
