It is an excellent idea! I'd like to think this idea has been brewing in
your mind since I mentioned it about a year ago. :-)
I had the idea when I saw @zooko's license, which is precisely the
opposite -- permissive for two years (IIRC), then strengthening to
"to distribute or communicate copies of the Original Work and Derivative
Works to the public, with the proviso that copies of Original Work or
Derivative Works that You distribute or communicate shall be licensed
under this Transitive Grace Period Public Licence no later than 12
months after You distributed or communicated said copies"
