Comment (by dd32):

 In [3897] I've started to ingest the license headers into the new plugin
 directory so we can run some stats to see what kind of impact this change
 would have.

 Early indications are that probably about 50% of popular plugins list it,
 although they're haphazard in how they list the license (`GPLv2 or later`
 vs `GPLv2+` vs `GNU General Public License v2.0 or later` vs `GPL V2 or
 latest` vs even `GPLv2 or later (of-course)` :) )
