I can't think of any possible way to /enforce/ this, nor should we. We
definitely shouldn't redact the info from the API or dumps (which I assume are
the two most common ways of mirroring us).

Now, we might be able to expose the NOINDEX to reusers and encourage people to
respect it, but I can't see any way of preventing people from using the content
if they really want it.
