If a screenshot is used in Publication X, it may be fair use, but if Publication X is relicensed as a whole, the use of the screenshot may not necessarily be fair use anymore. Remember, the screenshot doesn't get the licence of the publication in which it is used simply because its use is fair use in *that* publication.

This is why the Wikipedia prefers screenshots that are relicensed as FDL. A screenshot in the Wikipedia can only be used in the Wikipedia, and if content from the Wikipedia is reused in terms of the FDL, the publisher of that release must determine for himself if the use of the screenshots are still fair use or not.
