this is where I am trying to get at actually. is it an intention to change
the NOTICE files

not quite true I think you know the act of changing artifacts and release
can be very expensive in practice. some projects have review on trivial
things as well. Then, new projects get to be dinged for yet another thing.
If they have to re release once it can cost 10hrs easy.

Some might simply not distribute the wrapper anymore. people are weird.
NOTICE file particularly because some feel it is a credit thing. being
listed or not listed is emotional. even if I dont personally care, I dont
particularly want to converse with someone about why their name is not in
there while takari is.

This is why I think when we are changing enforcement, and clearly this is a
change, we should think it through. This is important precedent wise.
