Yes, I prefer not to have content with different licenses because it may 
become a management nightmare at some point. Especially if content is 
being merged at some point or being rewritten.

There is an advantage in keeping things simple.

Why is the CC license not sufficient ? Why does the author not want to 
dual-license or relicense his content ?
