Christian --

As an attorney -- and not one of us mere mortals -- you may have more
insight on this than anyone. But I thought I heard/read/dreamed somewhere
that all government documents (except those which are, for whatever reason,
considered restricted due to "National Security" or whatever) are in the
public domain.

So doesn't that make the CC license somewhat moot, even as it relates to the
content under the President-elect's site?
