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.
“It is inappropriate to require that a time represented as
seconds since the Epoch precisely represent the number of
seconds between the referenced time and the Epoch.”
