Q: Where is the limit between displaying the credits where the user won't

Likely Answer: Umm...

Actual Answer: ???

Other things to consider:  how long must they be displayed?  What fonts
can be used?  What colors?  What orientations are allowed for the text?
What sort of display devices or mechanisms are ok to use (imagine systems
with no monitor and no serial terminal, or systems with a 3d interface
and not text)?

Or imagine systems for the blind -- what volume must these credits be
played at?  What speech rates are ok to use?  What quality of rendition
to phonemes is required?

Just scratching the surface, ...

You eagerly imagine problems where there are none. mkreiserfs does not specify any font or color, it lets bash do that. Adhere to the spirit of the license and you will be ok.
