"All rights reserved" does sound inconsistently and confusingly,
but I think it doesn't override the subsequent license; I tend
to read it like "...reserved unless granted hereby", which is
what the copyright law does, anyway. 

Still this is an issue that would be nice to get fixed.  We rely on
package maintainers to keep their packages in a proper state
from the legal viewpoint, so they should apply the legal notices
