It seems my notice will not be taken in account. OK, I can live with that.

I would like to propose at least one thing which, I hope, can be easily 
accepted. Let's add a notice to "Terms of Use", warning re-users they should 
possess a list of authors (for example a database dump) even when they give 
credits by linking to re-used page for a case of its deleting or 
disappearance. I feel this can ensure in a reasonable way that the content 
can stay free even when articles are deleted or WMF closes its business. It 
seems to be fair to both, authors and re-users. Nobody is forced to keep 
dumps or lists of users but if someone does not do it, it can mean problems 
to him. Just a warning that freedom costs and expects something.

Is it possible to add it?
