Nor should there be in the NOTICE file.

I think the SCALA NOTICE should read

>>>
This product includes the scala runtime and compiler (www.scala-lang.org)
Copyright (c) 2002-2010 EPFL, Lausanne, unless otherwise specified.
<<<

In my reading of it, that is all the license requires.

This assumes that the product does indeed *include* the SCALA compiler.
Otherwise the references must be removed from NOTICE and LICENSE.

I don't think that's a problem; they are often included in 3rd party licenses.
