This is already the guideline, the problem is what do you do when upstream
postpones fixing to "indefinitely later" because licensing stuff is
low-prio for them
If upstream does not see an urgent problem in it, why should we? We do
the same with license copies in packages. Also it would be upstream that
might have a problem with the license information, since they provided
the fonts like they are and allow distribution, I cannot see a problem.
