Reviewing the Squeak license, it appears that it includes no requirement
to actually include the license in the software, so not including it
wasn't a license violation (although "sloppy" may still apply). This is
different with the MIT license: it explicitly requires inclusion with
the software. Given that the MIT license is a template, so each
contributor will provide her own version of it, this gives a long list
of licenses to include.
