There is already one important objection written on the wiki: You cannot put 
your work into the public domain in every country.  For example, I live in 
Germany where the concept of putting something into the public domain just 
doesn't exist.  Does this mean that I won't be able to contribute to 
haskell.org?  Does I have to use annotations to say that my work is licensed 
under, say, a BSD-style license, while most of the other contributions are in 
the public domain?

We should really find an answer to these questions before putting a lot of 
effort into the wiki.

Best wishes,
