Also the idea is that the N&L (and Disclaimer, Readme if any) are at
the top-level of the artifact.

The only exception to this is that N&L files are added to a jar
META-INF directory instead (as that is the convention for jars) .

Having the files in a standard place is intended to make it easy for
the consumer to find the files.

The N&L files are important for the consumer; they should not have to
go looking for them.
