There is no need for a package in NonGNU ELPA to have those words in it,
as far as I can see.  Does anyone see why that should be required?

CC0 is ok.

That is nonfree software -- not ok.

That is vague; it should specify the license.

That is a problem.

Right, that is no good.

I can't draw much in the way of conclusions from your report
since you have not said how you got this list of packages that
you are searching through.
