You are quite right!
I would think that the following licenses belong in
/usr/share/common-licenses/  :

GPL-2  LGPL-2  LGPL-2.1
 --- as they are just now

2-clause-BSD
 --- as in  http://www.fsf.org/licenses/info/BSD_2Clause.html

3-clause-BSD
 --- as in  http://www.fsf.org/licenses/info/BSD_3Clause.html

Expat-MIT
 --- as in  http://www.jclark.com/xml/copying.txt

X11-MIT
 --- as in  http://www.x.org/Downloads_terms.html


Maybe a wishlist bug should be filed against the base-files package...
What do you think?
