In that case, I personally think the safest strategy is including such
notice, even though it was not present in the first place.

This is "getting extreme".  If the original author didn't bother asserting
their copyright, why would one have to do it in the modified version?

Fully agreed that adding a full copyright statement for the past contributers seems excessive. What would not be excessive is a note along with the new copyright statement that others hold copyrights to parts of the file, but chose not to add a full notice at that time.
