Quite right. I was reading section 7 incorrectly and had
mentally omitted the word "other". So, you're correct, this
is a non-permissive additional term as defined by the GPLv3.
I've fixed this, thank you so much!

I was intending for it to be subject to 7b, in particular,
Requiring ... author attributions ... in the Appropriate
Legal Notices displayed by works containing it
To help move things along, I've written a "Language Discussion"
section in the readme describing my logic. I'm hopeful to have
commentary and any corrections you might see.
