I recommend to put the information in DISCLAIMER.  Yes, that means bugs
in DISCLAIMER require re-rolling, but:

1. Bugs in DISCLAIMER should be found before the first artifact is
   rolled.  It's simply an audit and it can be done directly on the
   source tree in version control.

2. Re-rolling shouldn't be an expensive step that should be avoided. It
   should be "Edit DISCLAIMER, commit, run script to roll" followed by
   everyone diffing the old artifact to the new one and re-casting their
   votes based on the work they already did to review the old artifact.
   (And yes, it's still some effort, about which, see #1.)

3. Artifacts should state their exact license terms — accurately,
   completely, and (de facto standard) in-band.
