You can contest, but the fact is that a release is just a revision in 
the SVN trunk, not a package you deliver, AFAIU. I suggest that you read 
carefully this :
and more specifically the last paragraph :

" The Apache Software Foundation produces open source software. All 
releases are in the form of the *source materials* needed to make 
changes to the software being released. In some cases, binary/bytecode 
packages are also produced as a convenience to users that might not have 
the appropriate tools to build a compiled version of the source. In all 
such cases, the binary/bytecode package must have the *same version 
number* as the source release and may only add binary/bytecode files 
that are the result of compiling that version of the source code release"

In other word, the release *is* the SVN revision that has been voted.

Please do. If you are not convinced by the complex wording used by the 
Apache site, just have a look at every ASF project, you will see that 
the LICENSE file is present in each trunk and tag.

It's also explicitly written on

At least, I would suggest that you restore the file, then discuss the 
rationale for this file being present or not on another thread:)
