But copyright notices are per-file, right?

BTW: As soon as we make a single change to that file, it will deserve
a "Copyright by Free Software Foundation".  What's discussed here,
rather is whether we should also keep the other copyright line.

Right, but the only change I can see myself applying to it is adding (or changing) the copyright line. :-)

I expect the build process to be confused.

The only possible source of annoyance would be "make check_copyrights",
but this comes with an escape hatch (the copyright_exceptions file), so
there shouldn't be any problem.

So that's okay to do. Good to know, thanks.
