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.
