I think it's probably important to have the disclaimer because some
licensors have tried to slip licence restrictions or liabilities into
what they labelled as disclaimers; and it's useful to know the
copyright holder in case it's one of the few that insists on
particular interpretations of terms like "use".

It also makes it slightly easier to spot common-licenses and compare
with them with wdiff because they are included in debian whole.

Thanks for asking.  I've nothing much to add to other comments on
the substantial question.  ccing as originally requested.

Hope that helps,
