my level of legal paranoia is higher than some other committers. at the 
time, we needed *everything* licensed with ASL2.0 ASAP. (there are some 
jurisdictions which may - in theory - require explicit - rather than 
implied - licenses for anything and everything.) so, i added them 
everywhere i could including the documentation.

i've never actually been convinced by the prevailing copyright theories 
around apache concerning documentation (these are that implied 
copyright is sufficient). so, if it's causing problems, i'd be happy 
for the license to be removed.
