Unmodified minified versions (downloaded from the website or from a CDN)
keeps the appropriate copyright notice. Minifiers also keep the first

That's true that the permission notice is not included in the copy. But,
this is also the case for the version provided by jQuery and for the
version we provide ourselves in libjs-jquery.
