Is there any existing license can a person can use to distribute a document that allows reuse, derivative works, and free distribution, under the condition of it being licensed under the same or a similar license, but without requiring attribution to the original author? The common choice for share-alike seems to be CC-BY-SA, which does require attribution, but what if you want to be able to supply your name as author on the original work, but not impose mention of your name on all derivative works?
On that note, all the other CC licenses also seem to require attribution. Why is that? Does it somehow naturally follow from the other aspects of the license anyway?
I'm not sure how the GFDL would fare with this, but regardless there may be other practical issues with it like requiring printing the license text with each copy of the work.
