This might be very significant.  Would you like to describe the
comparison more precisely?

For instance, what is the pool of packages you're analyzing?  All
packages in GitHub?  All Emacs packages?  Something else?

What time periods did you use for analysis, for each time period, what
was the fraction with licenses?

Thank you very much.  It's possible that your efforts are responsible
for the improvement, if it is in Emacs packages.
