The "ASF Source Header and Copyright Notice Policy" here:
    http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html

says:

"2. Each source file should include the following license header..."

and then later under the FAQ it clarifies this with:

"What files in an Apache release do not require a license header?"

"A file without any degree of creativity in either its literal
elements or its structure is not protected by copyright law;
therefore, such a file does not require a license header. If in doubt
about the extent of the file's creativity, add the license header to
the file"
