> Is there some acceptable way to reduce the bloat / duplication in LICENSE for MIT / BSD
licenses that differ only in copyrights for different files?

Usual way is to use the short form, i.e. put some pointer text in LICENSE referring to the
full license in a seperate file. [1]

Here something I put together a while back that may also help. [2][3]

That being said if the copyright are in files headers then legally there’s no reason to
list them in LICENSE, it just nice putting everything in one place in LICENSE and makes it
a lot easier to review.
