I plan to address a bunch of licensing-related issues together later this
week. You can see the use cases I have collected so far here:
Search for "Help people searching for content to find content covered by
licenses that suit their needs".

I don't think reusing rel=license for subparts is workable. There's
already deployed software that treats it as described in HTML5 (i.e.
document-wide). We would need something that doesn't conflict with those
implementations if we want to address this use case.
