They all refer to "Lesser" GPL.

And none of them refer to version 2?

While at it, I suggest replace the note with this newest one used by FSF,
referring to their web address instead:

 You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
 along with this program.  If not, see <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.


And while at it, leading X- in custom fields is discouraged.  I suggest
using License-Comment: instead.

I like this, it's really less vague than the X-Comment form, anyway
DEP-5 suggests differently:

### Extra fields.

Extra fields can be added to any section. Their name starts by **`X-`**.

As usual, thanks for your excellent hints!

You are quoting the definition of "Extra fields". I am referring to the later discussion in the debian-project mailinglist.

Even when using r135 of DEP5 you can arguably avoid leading X- simply by considering your fields not as "extra" ones but "proposed" ones (as their format are not defined nor forbidden).
