[security-dev 00407]: xml-stylesheet data files usage in tests removed by fsg.sh

Hi.

The IcedTea fsg.sh (Free Software Guidelines) script that scrubs any
dubious contents from the files distributed through OpenJDK has the
following:

# has w3c copyright. license to be checked / needs checking after decoding
rm -f \
  openjdk/jdk/test/javax/xml/crypto/dsig/data/xml-stylesheet \
  openjdk/jdk/test/javax/xml/crypto/dsig/data/xml-stylesheet.b64

These files are local copies of the following files:
http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-stylesheet
http://www.w3.org/Signature/2002/04/xml-stylesheet.b64
(The second is a base64 encoded version of the first.)

These files are used in the following tests:
openjdk/jdk/test/javax/xml/crypto/dsig/GenerationTests.java
openjdk/jdk/test/javax/xml/crypto/dsig/ValidationTests.java
(Which currently obviously fail without those files in the data dir)

These tests references the merlin-xmldsig-twenty-three Baltimore test
vectors (also distributed by the w3c):
http://www.w3.org/Signature/2001/04/05-xmldsig-interop.html

The xml-stylesheet file references:
http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Legal/ipr-notice.html#Copyright and
http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Legal/copyright-software.html
Which seem to imply we may freely distribute them.

So I would like to remove these "cleanups" from fsg.sh.
Opinions?

Cheers,

Mark
