The problem is that the release artifacts are sometimes collections of several 
more focused artifacts, at least in the Maven 2 world they get distributed in 
smaller units.

I guess that the correct solution is that each of those "collection release 
artifacts" has to contain a hand-crafted NOTICE.txt file. The license should 
because of the ASF policy always be the same.
