Amend 7b here, in order to correctly comply with 4c(iv) & 4a of CC SA-BY 3.0?[edit]

7b includes:

"Attribution: ... When you contribute text, you agree to be attributed in any of the following fashions:"


I suggest the above be changed to the following, in order to resolve the issue highlighted here:

"Attribution: ... When you contribute text, you agree that being attributed in any of the following fashions, is sufficient author credit for all forms of re-use of your contribution:"


Optionally, text like the following can also be added to 7b:

"In particular, your agreement to this term means that you and Wikipedia jointly request re-users of your contributions licensed under CC SA-BY 3.0, to not include credits in accordance with 4(c) of CC SA-BY 3.0, other than as stipulated in this term in those situations where re-users would prefer to only include credits in one of the ways specified in this term."
