It's agreed on all sides that the advertising clause *is* enforceable
in the UK and in general outside the US.  So we should comply

It's not clear that it applies.  It doesn't say that you must always
mention Foo in your ads if you are distributing the software; it says
you must mention Foo when you otherwise advertise the features of Foo.
We don't usually mention specific features of anything at all.
