I'm not a lawyer, but the CLA itself seems to suggest:

"you may submit it to the Project separately from any Contribution, identifying the complete details of its source and of any license or other restriction"

which would be pretty much what I was hoping you would be willing to
do - identify the author and its license, Creative Commons or not.

As it turns out I'm not a lawyer either and I don't understand it.

Even though I am not a lawyer I feel the language is pretty clear. Also, I do not believe the practice of using other's work without citing it, even if it's scratch work, in a public forum is really acceptable just out of respect for other artists, you know? Even here when we build on each other's work I've noticed we've been very good about stating whose works we built upon. I think it's a good practice even outside of the fact that the CLA requires it, honestly.
