Understood. I think we can live with the current situation and maybe
later consider adding a recommendation ("SHOULD" and not "MUST") for the
copyright line format.
Btw, are there cases where a license mandates that a verbatim copyright
notice needs to be used? If yes, then we might need to support both
Copyright-Verbatim: and Copyright: fields...
