Agreed; I'd go further and say it's inappropriate.  ISTR about the
only time such an attributory paragraph has been considered
acceptable is when the file has been imported from some other
project.  If it's sole existence is within Apache, which is
a group effort, a simple 'originally written by Foo B. Ar' is
more than sufficient.
