Did anyone ask the WMF lawyers, yet?

I think it's clarified, see the T215468 and the related task: Structured data is CC0. Would have been much nicer if this work was done before going live. Close this one?

I would support closing this, but the license only reads that captions are covered under the CC-0 (Zero) license, shouldn't there be a more ambiguous wording which covers all future Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons?

I'm puzzled by the part "the license only reads". Where did you find this? Link please. Because this is what it's going to be soon: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/mediawiki/extensions/WikimediaMessages/+/488584/3/i18n/wikimedia/en.json

Very specifically only mentions file captions. ☹

"License for caption contributions only".
