Less shouty, so that's a good thing. Whether it passes the test of
"conspicuous" as required under U.S. UCC, I don't know.

A promising sign. I would want to know the Apache foundation's legal
theory on using a mixture of shouty and readable text while conforming
to the above legal code.
Whether you (or someone else) actually spends the time and effort to

readability of the plain text version, conformance with legal codes,
and finalising the license text.
