So instead of giving that person *more work* and making it harder to 
disseminate FSF ideas, why not release the texts under CC By-SA, and instead 
provide a simple mechanism for people to ask for *endorsement* if they 
want/need it (or, indeed, provide endorsement for translations FSF finds and 
decides are good enough)?

Seems like a good deal to me.
