You keep repeating the question without explaining what is wrong with 
the existing clauses.

In the case of GPL one is it mainly meeting the minimum requirements for 
establishing the copyright status of the file when used outside of the 
original application.  Such re-use is fundamental to the GPL concept, 
even if many open source developers only think of their programs as ever 
being used as a whole.

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
