I had in mind writing my own "Don't Be A Duchebag" (DBAD) license. it would encompass the regular CC stuff, plus some of the "unwritten rules" to cover duchebags who want to just rip-off and undercut the original designer without adding any value.

I know many good projects by local hacker/makerspaces you can buy there for something like their own costs for parts and pcb pluse a little additional fee, so that in fact the work of the members (creating the kits, picking all the parts, ordering pcbs etc) is paying some of the hackerspaces bills, supporting the community this way. Without these earnings, the hackerspace wouldn't be able to make soldering stations including reflow oven, measuring equipment and all the other expensive equipment to everyone interested.
Presumably anyone using the NC license sells the PCBs themselves, so order them from them and resell them in the kits ...

No, I know enough projects with the creators having an abstract fear that someone could make money with their work.

I'm not a lawyer, but I would guess that even the creation of these kits is not coverd by -NC, as the partlist is still part of the project and therfore covered by the -NC clause of the license.
