More for understanding here, but in the copyright documentation [1],
it says,

"There are many versions of the MIT license. Please use Expat instead,
when it matches."

Does it really matter that much if MIT or Expat is the name if the text
is included as well? More want to know going forward for other packages
as it seems a bit ambiguous.
