The problem with needing the original patch for your patch to work, that means the original hack author must never update his hack or it could become incompatible with the addendum.
Which is why you should probably note which version the addendum is intended for.
I don't understand what "originally patched work" means. From the example page it seems that this means "translated game".
I think it might be clearest if it's explained in terms of how the end user applies the patch. He starts with a vanilla unmodified ROM, he applies the patch for the hack or translation on which your addendum is based, and then he applies the patch for your addendum. In other words, your addendum patch should only contain your own work.
I also disagree with the credit part here. If Addendums require a patched image and do not contain work from the base patch, I see no reason to credit the authors of the original patch. Yes, I'd throw a thank you to readme or such, but listing them for the Addendum gives an impression that they worked for it specifically.
The "Original Hacking"/"Original Translation"/"Original Work" credits are intended the be used to credit the individual(s) who originally made the hack or translation on which your addendum is based.
