I agree. However, it's difficult for downstream re-publishers to
distill all the names and IPs from the page history to a reasonable
attribution block. The RDF pages have it now; I just wanted to make it
clear on the article pages, too, so you could print out a page and
photocopy it and comply with licenses that require attribution.

For Wikitravel, we've had a couple of re-publishers who haven't given
attribution. I just wanted to make it easier to comply with our
license, which, by the way, isn't the GFDL.
