I agree that this is a Free Software license, personally.  It seems
fundamentally no different from the X11 or BSD licenses which require
copyright notices to be maintained as introns -- it's a requirement
which doesn't really serve any Free Software goals, but it's so minor as
to be harmless.  It can't combine in any way that I can see with some
other requirement, nor can it be abused in any way.  So, I see no reason
not to accept it as a Free Software license.

The FSF hasn't issued a statement on this yet.
