That's not the case. Without knowing the grant of license, one doesn't
know whether the copyright holder permits, for example, redistribution
under the GPL version 2 only, or version 3 only, or the GPL version 3 or
any later version, or the recipient's choice of GPL version 3 or
CC-By-SA 4.0, etc.
So it's essential to know what is the specific *grant of license* from
the copyright holder to recipients of the work.

Do you know of such a work, proposed for inclusion in Debian?
If not, I think we shouldn't spend much time on speculation :-)
