I assume that Eric wants a well known RDDL purpose to use in documents 
that he is authoring. RDDL purposes are simply URIrefs. The idea is 
that the document pointed to (by href="") has a purpose of "licence" or 
"copyright" and a nature of "HTML" or "plain text" or whatever the 
format of the document pointed to is.

No, just the RDDL page.

Not necessarily because the RDDL document might point to documents 
owned by someone else.

That is my assumption from what he asked.
