If I have a post imported from Stack Exchange, may I make the post native (to PhysicsOverflow), i.e. could I remove the attribution line from my own posts? If so, are there any restrictions to doing so?

Yes, you may. You may remove the attribution line (This post was imported from...) as long as the following criteria are met:

• The post is written by you.
• Besides retags, spelling fixes, grammar fixes, etc. and other minor edits, nobody else (other than yourself) has edited the post on StackExchange.
• If the post was not posted from your home computer, you may want to check the public computer owner's (including universities, schools, offices, cybercafes, or someone else's personal computer) policy on content created through the computer.
The third point is written only for legal reasons. I'm not going to speak any further : )
