Actually the answer seems simple. Whatever the IB site publicly displays and requires, we can observe what IB considers adequate, plus the attribution requirements of CC-by-SA and any non-conflicting wikitravel reuse terms and attribution to the site itself if needed.
We may do more (add diffs and other authors where omitted, link to an explanatory page), but whatever information IB provides, if we show at least the attribution information visible in IB's own public pages, it would inherently be hard for IB to sustain a claim of any fork inadequately attributing original authors. Also attribution of "wikitravel" or "IB" itself is not a barrier. It doesn't provides any assistance to IB in terms of their presumed goal of preventing forking. It is trivial to meet any sane and legally necesary acknowledgement of wikitravel.com and/or IB, once IB stipulate (as they inevitably must) the attribution they feel to be acceptable and its legal basis. Beyond that the rest is a matter for, 1/ the wikitravel community such as care to speak on it, and 2/ any minimum attribution the wikimedia community or the Foundation might feel is needed for best practice or license compliance. It may be possible in a number of ways but I'm sure a satisfactory agreement would not involve IB-style litigatory approaches.
