For crying out loud, we've had this freaking argument every single
time abdera has released.  There is zero reason to add license headers
to two line properties files, test data that is explicitly testing
atom content as it exists in the real world (where it would NOT have
any license headers), or any number of other cases in that list.  If
you have specific examples of things you do think need licenses, cite
them.  Saying "everything that you can slap a license header on
without breaking something" is not helpful, see the archives of this
list for details.
