Attribution by reference to a URL only seems reasonable for online
reuse to me. For content added directly to Wikimedia projects, you may
be able to get by with including permission to do so in the terms of
service, but for 3rd party content that doesn't work. If I write
something on another site, release it under CC-BY-SA, and it is them
incorporated into a Wikipedia article which is then printed and bound
in a book, I expect my name (or pseudonym) to appear in that book. I'm
easy going when it comes to the exact details of how it is included in
that book, but I expect it to be there. Nothing else seems reasonable
to me.
