Unfortunately it seems to be quite a debate, see:
Problem is that one file says "or later" and the rest doesn't.
I'm not a lawyer and with the authors comment clarifying that most of
the worst isn't "or later" it's safe to say it's not since one file
can't virally affect all the others.
It's a very thin line to walk on though.
