For the record, I was wrong, and here's the policy statement that
confirms what Sebb said:

http://www.apache.org/dev/release.html#notice-content

"What Content Is Appropriate For The NOTICE File?

Read [http://apache.org/legal/src-headers.html#notice].

Only mandatory information required by the product's software
licenses. Not suitable for normal documentation."

cheers,
