I cannot see how this is different from how BSD licenses require that
the BSD copyright blurb *itself* is retained with all derivates.

Everybody seems to agree that this does not make the BSD license
viral, and that a derivor is free to give fewer rights to his part of
the copyright in the derived work than the original BSD author gave to
his part.
