I'm not a lawyer, so I cannot say anything about custom licenses or
notices, except that we do not recommend using them.
I think the best option for a non-copyleft free license is to use the
Expat license as-is. You'll save a lot of time for people who want to
know whether your project truly complies with the Free Software
Definition, including the Savannah Hackers, the Debian packagers,
people who reuse your code in existing projects, etc.
