Ah, this may in fact be irrelevant!

"The phrase /above copyright notice/ is somewhat misleading.
Presumably the BSD license really refers to the actual copy-
right notice that is displayed on the software being distributed
rather than the copyright notice shown above in the license,
for otherwise this would be a meaningless requirement."

Presumably this applies to the Expat/MIT license too.
