I think what I will say on this topic is this:

If there is not a clear rpm dependency between a subpackage (e.g.
foo-devel Requires: foo) and the package which contains the License
text, and the license text contains a requirement that it be distributed
along with all binaries, then and only then is it acceptable to
duplicate the License text in multiple subpackages, with the caveat that
it should be in the SAME location in each subpackage.

Note: The GPL/LGPL does require this.
