The word "should" seems to imply this might be optional, since the
verbatim BSD sections use "must" for the mandatory parts.

The GPL has similar requirements for notices of modification.

All that said, this is license proliferation, which isn't really good,
so you might want to consider asking upstream to drop the clause.
