It isn't, for the reasons you point out. But it is good manners to make  
some reasonable acknowledgement of contribution, and therefore considered  
a requirement in practice.

(I'm unconvinced that this group's time should be spent on the finer  
nuances of exactly what that text should be and where it should go, but  
that an acknowledgement is required I consider settled question).
