About the license header in Frysk files

In each file of Frysk, there is a license header. To tell you the truth, I didn't take much notice of that before. But because we are wishing to add some new files into Frysk, so we had to consider this.

Our point is not to add any exception for IBM contributed code at this time. We need some time to evaluate what these words mean (we are not legal people anyway). So what about the following text for new files initiated by IBM people.
Any comments are highly appreciated!

P.S: we are planning to submit these new code with no license header at this time. This is mainly for review. When we reach agreement on both the license text and the code, we can check in the code. Is this ok?
