International users might not care; but, for Italian users living in 
this regime of (non-copyright) oppression, these restrictions are a big 
step forward compared to those existing so far under {{soprintendenza}}.
Moreover, the latter will provide the former with free as in freedom 
photos to improve the very poor coverage of Italian cultural heritage on 
Wikimedia projects and the whole web: yes, it seems something everyone 
should be happy about.
Sure, {{Personality rights}} and such are sometimes annoying 
restrictions which reduce our (and the reusers') liberty; but this 
doesn't reduce the fitness to our scope (Wikimedia' and Commons').
