The relevant sentence in AGPL seems to me:

     7. Additional Terms.
     b) Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or
     author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal
     Notices displayed by works containing it;

 From my understanding, the copyright holder *can* mandate
attribution, but not necessarily a specific "powered by".

IANAL, however.
