Yes. I'm also thinking of pointing Spot to this mess, as those files seems
duplicated pretty much everywhere, and this is the kind of cleanup op he did

I suppose the clean solution would be to make it process a canonical copy of
the data at build time (that will make the licensing appear in rpm deps checks,
and make sure QT uses the same values as others). Dunno about the licensing
patch. To be honest my primary interest is to make sure all our software uses
the same values, and the legal angle is just here to make people interested
