Especially in this case, where it is debatable whether the patent
> grant adds or removes rights compared to plain BSD.

Inevitably so, since the BSD license family either grants no patent rights
(if you read it literally) or grants all rights (if you interpret the magic
word "use" as referring to patents).

One of the oil men in heaven started a rumor of a gusher down in hell.  All
the other oil men left in a hurry for hell.  As he gets to thinking about
the rumor he had started he says to himself there might be something in
it after all.  So he leaves for hell in a hurry.    --Carl Sandburg
