the most significant factor, regarding this criteria, is that i
do not know of any forge which would satisfy it, including
savannah - i believe that moving A+7 to the 'A' level, would
demote savannah to a 'B'

my interpretation of A+7 is that it would require some technical
mechanism to parse source files, upon each change, deduce if a
license header is missing, and "remind" or "help" to add it, or
correct it

Here's the criterion

Helps or reminds users to put license notice in their source files.

Judging from the face value, I'd say minimally a forge can satisfy this by stating in the docs that there should be a copyright notice in each source file.

Another simple thing to do is to display a link to the reminder in the doc somewhere on each repo page (like "license checklist").

its a very nice wish; but i doubt that any forge will do that in
the foreseeable future
