I am working on articulating my differences with David Wiley, and if I could, I would want to put this post right in the middle of it somewhere. Oh, it has nothing to do with open licenses. But it points to the distinction between creating one version, which you localize 9essentialism) and the creation of many versions, each by and for people in a particular context (pragmaticism). Which reminds me, in turn, that essentialism is kind of a modernist doctrine, while pragmaticism is kind of a post-modernist doctrine (though I would say, while I am not a modernist, I am hardly a post-modernist either). maybe it's more like the difference between Curriki (which was recently funded by UNESCO) and Wikiversity (which, um, wasn't, I don't think).
