I think you could combine the verbatim and modified permissions
into one by:

This article may be copied and distributed in whole or in part
in any medium, provided that this notice is preserved
and that the reproduced part is clearly marked.

I think the information for how to obtain the original is
forcing people a little much, but you could tack that on the end
if you wished, or put a URL in the copyright notice.

Hope that helps,
