You still hold the copyright to your own version of the sources, you
can do with them whatever you want.  No, I'm not a lawyer, but it is
not illegal for a German non-lawyer to tell you what I've seen as
practice in similar situations in other projects ;-)

Just make sure you don't trip over trademark issue, i.e. don't call
your code Apache JULI or something like that.

This is a good idea, but entirely your choice.

Simply start from source that dodn't have those lines.

The Apache Software License doesn't care about derived work, use
whatever you want for new files.
