You didn't quote the beginning of the paragraph:

This is about sources, not binaries, right? If you don't include
the source but only the binary (.jar), then the situation might
be different. The combined LICENSE file is probably meant to avoid
searching through all the source files in order to locate all the
relevant licenses. But putting a reference into LICENSE shouldn't
be that much of a burden either.

Maybe ask on legal-discuss@?
