Sounds like you need a single copyright holder, not a blanket license (whatever
that means).  That means arranging copyright transfers (in the FSF/GNU style)
and getting every contributor whose code survives in the Platform to sign off
on it.

In other words, it's a major undertaking and by no means assured to succeed.
