- Don't allow duplication :
[..] The distribution of many types of Internet postings (particularly Usenet articles and messages sent to electronic mailing lists) inherently involves duplication. The act of posting such a work can therefore be taken to imply consent to a certain amount of copying, as dictated by the technical details of the manner of distribution. However, it does not imply total waiver of copyright.([http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_domain#.28Almost.29_everything_written_down_is_copyrighted wikipedia]).

wiki specific constraints
As opposed to usual coduments, wiki pages are usually made of lots of tiny contribution. Therefore the traditional notion of author probably doesn't apply as usually.
- Right to delete stuffs.
This section lists the desired features for the new license.
- Allow modification by others (add and remove).
- Allow redistribution (in various medias : packages, cd, pdf, etc...).
- Mix / Merge with other documents (with same license).
Attribution _not_ wanted. (Even thought we actually want to attribute the work to their original author, I believe it isn't possible to guarantee that all work attribution will be preserved over time. Furthermore, the actual name of the author isn't always known)
