The GPL text says:
: It is safest to attach them to the start of each source file to most
: effectively convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have
: at least the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice
: is found.
To me, the main cost if it is removed is uncertainty and risk of playing
'hunt the licence' later on, especially if some contributors retain their
copyright. Please abbreviate it, not remove it.
