While it would be nice to clean up this sort of thing just to avoid future
confusion, this doesn't strike me as a serious problem worthy of removing
the software from Debian unless the upstream copyright holders indicate
that they really had intended to offer no license for those files. That's
a very strange and very unlikely interpretation.
