I have an interest in this as it applies to downstream consumers who
wish to use a portion of the software -- for example, I'd like to use
musl's memmem and strstr in FreeBSD's libc.

I've proposed copying the text from the top-level COPYRIGHT into the
individual files themselves. (In code review at if you're interested.) If there were
a reference to the standalone copyright/license file it would need to
be modified anyway. Thus, from my perspective it doesn't much matter
if the original has no statement, or a one-line reference to a
separate file.
