My suggestions:
* Split out the authors and the copyright dates into one chunk. The fact that fileA is copyright 2005 Joe and fileB is copyright 2006 Fred and then fileC is copyright 2006 both of this is completely irrelevant for most people, just that Joe and Fred have copyright of some parts of the package is enough.

  * Make it possible to say "this package is licensed under foo
    except fileA which is licensed under bar"

Also it should be possible to say something like "this package is licensed under license FOO, but with the following exceptions" - and then add a field which takes a longish text with the exceptions.
