Why do they _have_ to?  I understand that it's optional and that we can
take time with it until a new license (e.g. GPL-4) arrives.
Also, scripts/tools can help with the transition.

- It's reducing future maintenance costs on new license arrival
- It's adding clarity and allows us to express the actual license
  of "GPL 2 or later" packages much better.
- It increases chances of correct labeling of future ebuilds
