I think it makes sense for each file to have a license or licence 
pointer. Otherwise, how do I know that I have the rights to use the 
'project.xml' file for anything, or even modify it?

At least if the file had a short header, such as 'Apache Software 
License (for full details see LICENSE.txt)' then this could be put in 
place on everything.
