While I *personally* agree with this license, it will be probably considered non-free (because you can't resell the photo alone), in particular by Linux distributions.

Looks good to me. "The right to compile photos from Unsplash to replicate a similar or competing service" doesn't really affect us when we're using individual photos. I think it doesn't even concern copyright but "database rights". And everything else is basically CC0.

CC0 should be uncontroversial, it should be definitely allowed by our license policy.

IANAL etc.
