That isn't obvious to me. Does 7(b) allow a requirement that a legal
notice be preserved in a specific field of a file format?
No. This clause was largely meant to codify GPL-compatibility of
existing notice preservation requirements in GPLv2-compatible
licenses, which apply only to code itself (or maybe materials
accompanying distributed code).
