Hi Scott,
  The meaning of the declared and detected at the package is
different than what we've been discussing at the file level, and
separation of the two different cases (package level vs. file level)
is important and significant.
How are these different? In both cases it is the set of licenses the
author(s) have declared/stated they believe (or want you to believe)
cover the entity in question. Seems pretty much the same to me except
that the entity is file in one case and a package in the other (which
is most likely just a file).
