A good read! I liked your final point in particular on the legal empowerment of the users.

Example: https://github.com/kanthvallampati/IVORY/issues/1

I wonder if there is any data or research into willingness to contribute dependent on whether there is a license listed, a license file, and the license type.

Perhaps if a license.txt isn't detected, a dialogue should trigger letting the contributor know, and suggesting they post it as an issue for resolution (or non-resolution).

Either way I think it's a great opportunity for contributors and developers to engage with the project, steer the project if they care enough to, and help educate others about licenses and licensing.
