A fair if fine point.

Ah. Well, could you respond to my points as to why I think they _are_
free? I disagree with the terms of the summary.

Can you explain to me why requirements to include an author's name
make a license non-free, but requirements to maintain copyright
notices, warranty disclaimers, license notification, and changelogs
are not? At this point, I don't see the serious difference.

Excellent. I think debian-legal's input into the next version of the
CC licenses would be really helpful.
