"GFDL requires that you name at least the five primary authors."
That's misleading.  GFDL requires you name at least five of the
primary authors *on the title page*.  It *also* requires that you name
"the authors" (presumably, all of them) on the page entitled History.

Crediting 5 principal authors should not be sufficient.  Giving a url
for the list of authors, maybe, but just choosing 5 people and
ignoring the rest, no way.
