The best proposal I have seen in this thread is to consistently apply the template from everywhere. If it is consistently applied, it is easy to parse automatically, even if the format is not particularly parser-friendly.

As was said before, we need a new check in the Boost test matrix
to enforce consistency, since the inspection reports
are currently not enforced.

License and copyright errors are by far the most common problems found by the inspection tool, so by adding a check to the test matrix we could clean that up a lot.
