The ability to remix a standard seems an essential freedom: if a
standard becomes too complex or encumbered by patents then this is the
only way to save parts of it.  That's why for Digistan we defined[1]
the ability to fork a standard under a share-alike license as a
necessary aspect.  We chose the GPLv3 mainly because it includes some
safeguards against software patents, which CC does not.
