Hi Dan,
The NOTICE files in your jar files (e.g. cxf-rt-ws-rm-2.0-incubator- 
M1.jar) contain the following:

    Additional copyright notices and license terms applicable are
    present in the licenses directory of this distribution.

Since your jars will be separately downloadable in maven repos and  
embedded in other projects, the "licenses" directory will not always  
exist. I don't think this is adequate. IMO all license and notice  
information needs to reside inside the jars. I also would ask that  
the license and notice information be specific for each jar file,  
since not all jars may be embedded. However, that's just my  
preference. Most projects don't do this...
