I generally use \documentclass{letter} \usepackage[british]{babel}

Besides, isn't "Re:" the abbrev. for "Reply"? The letter is not a reply.

No, it is Latin (the ablative case of Res, according to the dictionary), roughly meaning "with reference to". This is part of why the "AW" prefix used instead by some German email software is a horrible thing. I may as well start prefixing with "Pri:".

It may be good to offer them the alternative to disclaim it. "As a precaution, we would like you to disclaim any copyright interest in LaTeX2HTML, or give
written agreement..."
I don't think that this would be a good idea. While it could make them
hesitate to reply / agree to my questions, the benefit would be minimal.
After all, they (if at all) have only part of the copyright in

I can't remember whether all copyright holders for a piece of software have to take part in an enforcement action.

btw: What do DDs with "written permissions" do? Is there a central place
to collect them?

If they're emailed, there's debian-email to put them in, but I don't know about postal things.

I will probably replace "written" with "intended". I hope this makes it
more clear.

Yes, I think it does.
