    I am one of those who “use, reuse, and commingle data”; I’ve been doing it for quite a while. I very well “know the complex issues that arise with even simple additional requirements such as this”.

    But I’ve seen for myself that lack of provenance is the black death of metadata. The problems with CC BY for data are real, but they’re not caused by legal or moral shortcomings, they’re caused by flimsy and cumbersome attribution technology. I think we’ll see the emergence over the next few years the sort of convenient, strong attribution/provenance technology for data that we are starting to see effectively deployed by GitHub for code.

    So think of your metadata as kittens.
    Today our licensing options are:
    CC0: “Free kittens. We don’t care if you let them die.”
    CC BY: “Free kittens. You’d better take care of them.”
    CC0 (+BY): “Free kittens. We’d be sad if you let them die”
