It's a reasonable interpretation. The problem is that there are
_other_ reasonable interpretations as well; in particular one easily
imagines a court that would find that the "limited-scope identifier"
defense is a nonsense word-game and finds for the plaintiff (the
author who had sued a pseudonymous modificator for infringement).
In default of clarification from the licensor, we should not include
