It's clearly not "a freedom issue" when the licensor includes the
licence on their pages without the trademark terms. I'm not sure
about the situation when they just link to the ambiguous page
which has had clarifications issued in obscure places by CC (along
with statements relying on the US view of "fair use" IIRC). I
reject your attempt to make me decide without extra data.

In another view: I'd not complain to the licensor nor object
to stuff going in debian if that was the only problem, but it's
not and I'm not going to endorse WCAG-busting practice.

So what's the practical difference? For example, would you give
this matter time at a scheduled meeting with CC people?

If you're really wondering about the priorities for fixing,
I'd say: author name purge, anti-DRM, comparable credit,
trademark licence presentation. However, I suspect the fixes in
easiest-first order are: presentation, purge, credit, anti-DRM.
