Standardised licensing templates

There really ought to be some standardisation on the names of licensing templates across wikis.

Examples: {{CopyrightAvecPermission}} works great in the fr: namespace, but I can only guess the exact meaning. If I want to copy an image from fr: to en: then I'd need to recreate this template (assuming it were a valid license).

{{redundant image}} works on en: but not commons:. I could re-create the template, but would anyone be watching for it?
