I am unfamiliar with any common practice to separate license headers,
copyright notices or similar into an independent commit. When such things
are broadly changed I could see that being independent, but new code should
just come with the headers in tact (and correct). I think I'm not getting
all the context, but please do feel free to clarify if there is some
precedent for this.
