I'm with you. Words like "perpetual" and "irrevocable" should always set  
off warning lights for any potential users.

Not to mention that kind of wording is incompatible with many uses of CC  
licensed material. Say I find a song licensed as by-nc. I say "cool, I'll  
use that in my video". Then I upload to YouAreTv and I've already given  
away rights for the song that were not mine to give away! That's...
