I think that given that the USG is already saying that CC0 is a valid Open Source license for the purposes of open source release on Code.gov the CC0 train has already left the station without OSI approval.

The FSF recommends it for public domain releases and states it is GPL compatible.

CC states it is suitable for software when a public domain software release is desired.

You guys can debate this all you like but it doesn't appear to me to matter much any more.
