I'd say, for simplicity, drop the last "unless"; I don't see the use
case for that.
Is it meant as a way for users to get a carte blanche from the
Foundation that they don't have to do attribution, or is it meant as a
way for the foundation to suppress attribution in certain cases? Both
would be questionable in my eyes.
