Carol, can you modify the comment in the RAT excludes to say that the
license is Modified BSD (which is Category A), not Adobe (which is not
Apache-compatible).  Adobe is just the copyright holder.  Modified BSD is a
template where you substitute in the copyright holder's name.

Bertrand, do we need to mention in the LICENSE file that the Open-Sans font
we got from Google WebFonts is under Apache license?  Or are Apache licensed
items never mentioned in LICENSE?
