Not true. The license will appear in modified works as well, and it's
likely that some of them might be plain text only. You still need to
allow for a plain-text version of the license text.

I think making the disclaimer "conspicuous" by visual demarcation
(lines of divider characters around the whole passage) and a header in
capitals is a good option. As for whether it satisfies the decision in
the legal code as discussed in this thread: I hope so, but don't know.
