I think with professional legal assistance the intent of this
restriction could be phrased as a "permissive additional term"
under GPLv3 section 7(e). What the author seems to be doing is
treating "SCCSID" as a trademark of sorts and wanting to restrict
how this trademark is used in published results. So long as the
author is OK with someone making a derived work and publishing
results from that work using some other name, then probably
there is probably a reasonable compromise here.
