It looks good to me, but IANAL either.

The MIT licence itself requires others who distribute the work to
include a copy of the licence, so, to easen their job, you really
should include the full licence body with the work.

Sounds fine to me. Just make sure they understand it’s not a new
licence but a timed grant.

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.		-- Coywolf Qi Hunt
