Isn't maintaining copyright notices in derivative works fundamental to
all licenses?  It would seem bizarre for any license to actual permit
redistribution without retaining the copyright notice somewhere.

(It says "supporting documentation", which is about as liberal a phrasing
as I know of, essentially saying "put it in the right place"--if you're
putting copyright notices in --show-legalese, that seems to qualify as
supporting documentation.)
