Actually, when I was referring to a BSD-like license, the requirement
of mentioning the original authorship in advertising was at least partially
in my mind. I think that's a good feature of the BSD license. Not
that "all software should have this feature", but I think it's an
important part of the style of licensing the BSD folks are looking for.

I wouldn't call the BSD terms nonrestrictive by any means; they merely
give a lot of commonly-wanted freedoms. (At the expense of others.)

The only "entirely nonrestrictive terms" I can think of would be
making something public domain - which has its own set of problems.
