Certainly, although MIT/BSD is generally better recognized and
understood in the context of software. I won't push the topic
off-track too much, I think the OKD definition of open access nicely
mirrors the OSI's definition of open source. CC0 does not appear in
their list of OSI approved licenses, which would make its application
in software problematic for many.
