What about things that are not documentation, but which the
documentation licenses requires to be included too?  (Which is
actually the case we are talking about.)

What about licenses?

It's easy to say "I think it should apply to *everything*", but
actually nobody thinks it should apply to *everything*, so the
question is: what counts as a reasonable exception?

Some think only licenses.  Some think also required advertising
texts.  Other people think reasonably small non-technical commentary.
