 I respectfully disagree. The revisions of the file are publicly visible.
 Maybe changes like r48 have a highly misleading potential and stand for
 what's missing: a better copyright statement.

 Until such one I strongly suggest to not drop the term "Copyright" in the
 readme for the moment. Because this is the last place of which the whole
 wordpress codebase has a reference to any sort of copyright.
