I think submitting the licence fallback of CC0 for review as
an Open Source licence is a very good idea. (This is distinct.)
OSI should probably look at the entire document but not certify
a “this isn’t copyrighted” statement as a copyright licence.

 seconds since the Epoch precisely represent the number of
 seconds between the referenced time and the Epoch.”
