Re: GPL-incompatible license

The goal of the XFree86 licence change is not to require special treatment, but only treatment equivalent to that given to other third party attributions. I don't believe that this is a large burden when compared to the requirement that all of the various licence notices be published. Furthermore, if publishing license notices in the documentation accompanying a distribution is the only form of third party attribution, then that would in itself satisfy the requirement of our modified licence.
What is considered an "attribution" or "acknowledgement" in this case? Would those who follow the FSF request to call the OS they distribute "GNU/Linux" be required by the new license to change it to "GNU/XFree86/Linux" because they have given acknowledgement in the name to the works of a third party, the GNU Project?
