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.
