I'm not sure this would help. In order to remain GPL-compatible (as I
understand it), the exemption must be severable, and if it's severable,
people can still add the notice and make it sticky.
It would be a statement that the original author doesn't *want* such a
notice (and it would be rude to add it against his wishes), but such a
notice can be made without touching the license.
