I have some half-baked RDF representation (using the voiD vocabulary)
of the lodcloud portion of CKAN, which I plan to polish up and publish
shortly. I will use those URIs there.

That's one way of modelling it. What I'd do is, attach several
properties to the data or software, one for the license, one for the
attribution. I believe that's how CC's proposed RDF markup works, with
distinct properties for pointing to a work's license and to the
preferred attribution text and attribution URL.
