Yes.  The NOTICE file must reflect what is in the package.  If someone
changes the package to add something that adds more required notices,
then our license requires that those notices be appended to NOTICE.

No.  The NOTICE file only refers to what is contained within.
It is only when the dependencies are packaged together that the
NOTICE file has to change to cover all contents.
