IMO, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.  But I’ll let Erik make the call
since he’s the RM.  Every change made risks another mistake.  I’m signing
off for tonight.  I’ll see what you guys think when I wake up.

A few more comments in-line.

Are you proposing to add the entire text of W3C to LICENSE or a pointer to
a separate file stored somewhere?  Are you also claiming that Batik’s
NOTICE is wrong?  That’s where we get xml-apis*.jar.

What changes are you proposing to make here?

Yep, missed that.  Checked it in.

The portion below is already in for Xalan isn’t it?  It is unclear whether
it needs to be duplicated or not.

Did you get this from the jar or somewhere else?
