FWIW part of the motivation for the Mozilla scheme was that, when looking at an "author chooses law" option, we could not think of a way to allow the author to choose that would allow compatibility between, say, Mozilla-NY, Mozilla-CA(li), Mozilla-CA(nuck), and Mozilla-UK. They each essentially become a separate license for purpose of compatibility analysis, which would defeat part of the point of a copyleft, even a weak one. So I'd recommend against that approach even though it sounds intuitively appealing.


Just out of curiousity, did you consider "copyright holder chooses law", or "the law is the venue of the copyright holder"? That way, in the case of Mozilla you could have used inter-company agreements to have all of the copyrights held by one entity (I assume Mozilla-CA(li)), and get you the venue you want.
