I'm not sure saying "In addition to the licence, I grant
perpetual permission to use my name in the work except in
copyright or authorship statements" in a letter is sufficient. It
may even contradict the licence enough to make it unsafe,
for all I can tell. CC-BY is a wordy licence, so fundamental
changes should be checked with a lawyer, in my opinion.
