I imagine a lot of these might simply be based on misunderstanding of
what the GFDL requires. I recall having a conversation with one editor
who was also hosting some Wikipedia articles on his own website. I
politely informed him that he was required to have the full text of the
GFDL and article history available, or links to it, when the subject
came up, he apologized and had the appropriate links on his site the
next day. A lot of these may simply be solved by a similar polite
notice, especially if the notice were from an official Foundation
