You overstate things.  There is no IPR issue here.  The IPR is set by
the SGA.  The question is about updating headers, which neither adds
nor subtracts any rights anyone has with respect to these files.   It
is documentation work that should be done, yes.  But let's not make it
something it is not.

And indeed it will be done, per the process, before this code is
included in a release.
