Perhaps As Dr Ernie suggested in 2006[1]

"Now that RFC 4946 [2] specifies rel-license for Atom, should we adopt
that as a normative reference?"

Its a Good thought it would almost eliminate the rel="licence" issue for

"2.  The "license" Link Relation [2]

   The "license" link relation can be used to associate licenses with a
   feed or entry.

   Feed and entry elements MAY contain any number of "license" link
   relations but MUST NOT contain more than one with the same
   combination of href and type attribute values.  The IRI specified by
   the link's href attribute SHOULD be dereferenceable to return a
   representation of the license.  The license representation MAY be
   machine readable."
Just a thought :-)
