Still need to move the DMLC code into a dmlc or third-party directory so
it's clearer which files are outside of the project's ability to control.
ie) excluding files because we can't fix without forking seems fine to me.
Unless we just say "The rat report will fail on these directories" and it
doesn't affect a vote, but that seems weak.

Agreed. -1 on my part. The LICENSE file is critical and shouldn't get worse.
