For the benefit of users.

The NOTICE file specifically mentions the Spring Framework code, but
fails to mention what license it uses.
Why should the user have to trawl the Spring website to find out what
the license is?

Also, the Spring project could potentially change to a different
license later - or add a new license - so IMO it is necessary to
document the license that the code is using.
