All source files should have appropriate headers. If its apache-owned,
ASL-licensed source, it should have the ASL header.

Yes: the policy is that they should have headers.

One option you have is to take the canonical source (eg the things  
you put
in SVN), and then during the building of your "binary" distribution, you
"compile" that source, which might involve things like stripping  
(me, I love stripping some of the whitespace and comments from these  
of files. Especially as a filter at the end of some (servlet) chain).
