I'd prefer to use the ASF's preferred pattern, no? That's what we've
been trying to do and seems like we're even required to do so, not
follow a different convention. There is some specific guidance there
about what to add, and not add, to these files. Specifically, because
the AL2 requires downstream projects to embed the contents of NOTICE,
the guidance is to only include elements in NOTICE that must appear

Put it this way -- what would you like to change specifically? (you
can start another thread for that)

Pretty sure that was meant to say that NOTICE embeds other projects'
"notices", not licenses. And those notices can have all kinds of
stuff, including licenses.
