I won't object.

But we'd include the file in the GNU Hurd/Mach/MIG source tress?  Doesn't
this affect the license of the whole packages then?

How does this work if a new release is to be made?  I first have to tag
the Git tree to get a proper version number, I guess?  But it's not too
much of a problem, as the tag can stay local (and be modified further on,
if it was tagged wrongly, or there are any last-minute fixes), as long as
the release is not made public.
