The v4 CC licences are definitely for data (earlier ones less so), several governments have their own licences (UK, Taiwan, others).

There's a fairly well established forum specifically for discussing such matters, which the Linux Foundation doesn't seem to have engaged prior to this announcement.

The discussion of their announcement, on that forum: https://discuss.okfn.org/t/cdla-permissive-and-sharing-licenses/6095
