I _quickly_ skimmed through EPL-2.0 and I could not see where the license 
would force a Contributor to be non-anonymous. I can see how license 
enforcement and more importantly identification of “Licensed Patents” could be 
an issue in practice, if Contributors remain anonymous though.

So, IMHO something like “© contributors to project X” should be OK, but you 
might complicate things later on.

BTW, for a standardised way of marking your own code with copyright and 
license info, I would recommend you check out
