The problem in short is that neither wikipedia or the foundation are
significant copyright holders. Thus there is not normaly a need to
credit them. The people who need to be credited are the authors. In
the case of the pictures I mentioned that would be me.  Legaly I could
file a DMCA takdown notice over those pics (well once I figured out
which legal system applied). The foundation couldn't.

The GFDL requires the author be credited not a publisher.
