I understand this to be the recommended approach, but IIRC I have seen
other ones, such as having the NOTICE file contain a local pointer to
each license in a separate file, often named accordingly, such as
license.bsd or in some cases license.foo (where foo is the component
being dependent on). I also have the impression that a single LICENSE
file containing all licenses with a heading of which
component/part/dependency is under which license, is the only
candidate for a unified approach and promoted heavily by many...
