Unless we are going to a policy that all POMs in the repos are apache
licensed, the copyright info should be in XML nodes itself, rather
than just human-parsed comments.

<pom-copyright licenseuri="http://apache.org/apache/2.0"
copyrightholder="http://apache.org/" date="2005-2007" />

Or you go up to RDF triples. Maybe dublin core docs cover this, though
you end up with a bit of the metadata that not enough people will
write. You could always make the presence of pom copyright info
mandatory in all new artifacts, I suppose.
