See also http://markmail.org/message/cxwtnuys65c7hs2y - we had a
similar discussion in Sling a while ago, and the way I read it Roy
clearly states that 1) is the way to go - NOTICE should only be used
for *required* attribution notices.

http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html#notice also says "the
remainder of the NOTICE file is to be used for *required* third-party
notices" (my emphasis).
