Well, thanks to Hung-Te’s clarifying answer, at least the inconsistent
spelling of »The Chromium*OS Authors.« with or without space shows that
a mistake indeed was made while copying.

Also I assume, that the inconsistency in adding »All rights reserved.«
or having the copyright sign spelled with a capitalized »(C)« or not
»(c)« is a mistake (and not a policy decision).

So to keep the differences between files small, it would be awesome if
some Google/Chromium OS developer could unify that and set up some
pre-commit hook checking that with each commit.
