All BSD3 licenses from different authors are "at the same level". To get 
the join of the licenses you must create a new license which 
incorporates all the different 3rd clauses. So while a most-restrictive 
license may exist, it will not be any of the source licenses.

(Comparatively) trivial for humans; tricky for automated tools (which 
attempt to do better than collocating all source licenses).

Live well,
