I agree! I was never totally comfortable with making this a "rule". In general, in our own work we try to 
list who we  sample from, but I think it really ought to be a personal ( and encouraged) preference, but 
not a pre-requsite to using this licence.

And we also have the same practical probelm where we simply dont know wher eall our material 
comes from!
