This is related to my question in the last legal team conference call:
How to deal with the billions of 'BSD-style'-licenses, the only

The answer was to come up with a license template concept. If I
understand this right, we are going to define the reference license text
of those licenses with a variable data field included in the text. Is
this right?
Sure, but in the case of libpng's license, the difference is more
significant than Copyright holder identifiers. It doesn't fundamentally
change the license's meaning, but it is technically different text, even
if templated.
