My understanding is that Guix's practice is to list the overall license or 
licenses of a package, not every permissive license that might apply to 
particular files.

While that file uses the original license header, it's effectively 
because the University of California retroactively deleted the advertising 
clause in 1999: see <> and <ftp://>.

libobjc2 is Expat-licensed—I will look into whether it can be unbundled, but 
it's not a license issue.
