Section 3(a)(3) of CC-by-nc-sa-v4.0draft4 states:
> 3. If requested by the Licensor, You must remove any of the
> information required by Section 3(a)(1)(A) if reasonably
where information required by Section 3(a)(1)(A) is basically
the names of the authors and others designated to receive attribution,
copyright notices, disclaimers, and a URI.
I understand that this clause is planned for all CC-v4.0 licenses.
Personally, I still believe this requirement fails to meet
the Debian Free Software Guidelines. See my previous message 
about this same issue in draft2.
I once again recommend to entirely drop this clause from CC-v4.0
licenses, or, at least, to amend it so that it says:
| 3. If requested by the Licensor, You must remove any inaccurate
| or misleading information required by Section 3(a)(1)(A) if
| reasonably practicable.
I really hope this suggestion may be implemented in the final
text of CC-v4.0 licenses.
