It is not like all javadoc comments are CC-BY-SA. It is about additional 
documentation like a user guide. The distribution can go without it in 
the worst case, and have it instead on another page in another 
repository. In other words, it is in no way elementary for the codebase. 
So it is in my eyes no critical part at all.
