MC8 added a comment to T96077: MediaWiki and CC 4.0 license.

Replacing the entries in the installer's licence selector with 4.0 instead of 3.0 is probably not a good idea for now. CC 4.0 is incompatible with 3.0 -- as we probably don't want want to preclude users copying things from Wikipedia to their own wikis (and back), it's probably best to stay with 3.0 for now. Adding both versions to the selector would probably be too confusing.

This doesn't look like it's easy to do without hacking the source, which I'm guessing we're resistant to; Phabricator opts for the sentence-as-key version of i18n, and the phrase "None" is reused nineteen times in the code, so we wouldn't be able to do the equivalent of editing the MediaWiki namespace.
