Let me understand this better, because I cannot remember having
discussed it before...

Is it OK for the author to request to be added to the credits even when
satisfying the request would cause the authorship credits to become
inaccurate?
Can I request to be added to the authorship credits of a work I took
really really little part in?
Can I do the same for a work I never contributed to in any manner?
