Yes, it's ok for me :)

Also, it's possible to specifically mention it in the header of every
shellscript in base-files, maybe using CC0[1][2]?

CC0 would then be included under /usr/share/doc/common-licenses.

Please note IANAL, i.e., I'm not aware of possible uncompatibilities
of CC0 with the rest of the project's licensing.

(Generally speaking, it's an interesting topic, BTW.[3])
