For exceptions, this is not a problem because anyone can use the software
under the normal GPL.

But for additional requirements, this may be a problem.

If you have a solution, please submit it to:

Maybe the copyright notices should carry a mention of where to find the file
which lists the additional requirements - or would adding that be too much
of a burden?
