I wish there was a clear cut example of what kinds of things CC licenses
might have that need to go in NOTICE.

But to me, the relevant part of [1] is: "For any other type of CC-SA
licensed work, please contact the Legal PMC."

And from [3]: "Do not add anything to NOTICE which is not legally

I couldn’t find much either.  Interestingly, I did see a thread on
legal-discuss saying that CC-SA is not Category A, only CC-A is [4], so
the only thing we have to go by is [1].

I wish I’d seen this sooner.  Or did you already ask?

Or how about this alternative?  Since you aren’t linking to text from
wikipedia and instead are copying text from wikipedia, how about we copy
text from blogs.apache.org/flex?  Then we can avoid this whole
LICENSE/NOTICE issue completely.
