If a request to remove attribution can effectively take away the
licensee's right to distribute the work, then the work isn't free.

Good enough for whom? CC, or Debian?
According to the current version of the license, neither case is good
enough for the CC license; that situation isn't good enough for
Debian. B-) The rough consensus at Debian is that works available
solely under a license aren't Free Software unless the license allows
distribution in any format, or, at least, parallel distribution in
more than one format.
Anyways, thanks for your attention and your comments.
