That would probably make your work unique among every musical recording
I've ever heard. That doesn't seem to be "fair" by any standard meaning
of the word.

Beethoven doesn't get this kind of attribution. John Coltrane doesn't
get this kind of attribution. Why should you get this kind of
attribution? Is your music so amazingly great that people are going to
be willing to butcher up their derivative works with attribution info
just so they can include your pieces? Because I wouldn't do this for any
art piece.
