I agree with Burobjorn. Moreover, the right of using pseudonyms is
normally considered as part of the moral right of attribution in several
civil law countries, hence we may say that what you are proposing is
perfectly coherent not only with the goals of CC's Attribution but with
author's rights in general.
Hope this helps and make you more confident about the appropriateness of
requiring attribution to a "nickname".
(All that having been said, I do not know whether lawyers may find some
legal problems with respect to the fact that the licensor is just
identified by a pseudonym. I guess this is not a big problem, but here
I'm less confident.)
All the best,
