It says GPL v2, but the format (specifically, the "END LICENSE BLOCK"
that follows that pararaph) suggests to me that upstream considers it
part of the license.

I agree with the rest of your email until the last sentence, where you
opine that is is not a restriction.  My reading is that it is intended
to be a license condition.
