I disagree for CSS files: for example, we need to add a notice line about
the use of "Nifty Corners", that, essentially, is made of CSS.
What I intended to do is creating a build that fails in case an invalid
license is present, so I wish to have a minimum amount of "skipped" files
(you can see them in the rat-maven-plugin configuration).
