'It would be better........' but it's adequate the way it is, right?
Should we have a special text file in the directory where the grid shift
files are stored, explaining the licensing conditions for each one?

The USA and Canada files were added last year I think and probably they
also are provided under some similar free distribution terms.

Maybe someone can undertake to check this up and collect all the terms /
conditions into one file.
