AFAIK, xml, html, properties, xsd and jelly files were not licensed. Hence, 
they have not been migrated.

However, if you really want to have the short license header, I should be 
able to fix that.

Concerning the "2004" instead of the "2003 - 2004" copyright, the license 
header used by applications/jmxdebugging committed by Geir - who is aware of 
this kind of concern - has been used as a template.

I agree that this module has been contributed in 2004 and hence that there 
is no way to apply a "2003 - 2004" copyright. Nevertheless, does it means 
that all files committed in 2004 should only have a "2004" copyright and the 
ones committed in 2003 should have a "2003 - 2004" copyright ?

If yes, one will need to query CVS to have the exact date of commit and 
apply the right copyright.
