FWIW in Etoys we modified Utilities class>>copyrightNotice to have the exact same contents as the NOTICE file included on disk next to the LICENSE file. The possibility of a NOTICE file is mentioned explicitly in the Apache 2.0 license. Our ReleaseBuilder has a checkCopyright method that ensures both on-file and in-image notices are the same. Additionally, SystemDictionary>>copyright has just the copyright lines from that notice, again the release builder checks they are consistent.
