before entering into much detail as to compatibility, why another slight
variation of the MIT? What are you trying to achieve here that cannot be
achieved with the required inclusion of all copyright notice? Just
because you put it as a "condition"? (I must have already had this
discussion elsewhere)

Beside that, I don't understand how the additional requirement should
apply in practice.

Can you please provide a rationale and why this should pass the
"proliferation" test? So far my opinion is negative, for what it's worth.
