I am all in favor of giving proper attribution (author tags), but -1 on 
anything which restricts the ASF's copyright on the code (like 
advertising clauses in this case).

As a result, I have to agree with all that pointed out that the code 
should be rewritten (in this case, the encoding list must be 
reconstructed from scratch).
