What do you think of using "Copyright-Holder" field? IMHO, if we decide
to start using fields to record the copyright/license field, we'd better
try putting all necessary information in the fields, instead of having a
"need to check both file header and information fields" situation. That
would unavoidably lead to controversial information. I also like the
idea of "License" field.
