Sure, effectively, you give them an alternate license so they are not in fact
breaking the NC license, they are using another license which you gave them.
However, if your work includes someone else's NC licensed work, you cannot do
this without getting the other person involved as well.
The same would hold for a BY-SA license that someone did not want to abide by
and sought another license on the underlying work.
