As someone else pointed out in this thread, you're able to host your
content outside of Second Life if you want to ensure people are able
to import it again. You're not restricted to using Second Life for
content distribution, and with an external site you can present your
full license, not just half a byte's worth of permission data.

For a great example of how you might spread your content, see the
script library at http://secondlife.mitsi.com/cgi/llscript.plx
