My understanding was that the NOTICE file lists copyright holders - the
reference to Red Hat is there because the initial code grant came from
Red Hat; since the grant was under the ASL, I don't understand why that
would need to be called out separately in the LICENSE file.

In any event, is there anywhere on the ASF website that clearly
articulates what goes into the NOTICE and LICENSE file ? All the
references I looked at are concerned more with the why than with the
how.

I'll add AL headers to the code files listed above (deltacloudd, *.rb,
*.js, *.css) The YAML and XML files are simply data, and therefore not
copyrightable by themselves in any event - I am following the precedent
of how httpd ships its config files w/o license headers.

Same here.
