Hard to answer, and I wouldn't know whom to ask. SFC maybe? The MIT license makes no restrictions whatsoever. CC means "some rights reserved".

All CC-NC variants are out obviously. CC-ND is impractical, we need to be able to modify stuff. And CC-SA does require sharing - which is not a bad thing in itself, but MIT does not require it.

The only one I could imagine for inclusion in Squeak would be CC-BY, which only requires attribution, but has no further strings attached. But IANAL and every license we add complicates things. It would be better if it was simply given under MIT.
