As the software is Licensed under MIT license you do not have to copy
the COPYING file into the package. You only need to copy the COPYING
file if you set license=('custom: foobar'), but if the license is one of
the licenses included in [core]/licenses (is even in base group) package
license=('license_name') is enought. (GPL1/2/3, MIT, APACHE....)

The original package in repos DOES install a COPYING file. For a reason.

You need one with BSD and MIT. They (at least BSD does) force you to
insert a copyright line. And so, every package under such licenses
has a file in /usr/share/licenses.

All source, data files and other contents of the PROJ.4 package are
available under the following terms. Note that the PROJ 4.3 and earlier
was "public domain" as is common with US government work, but apparently
this is not a well defined legal term in many countries. I am placing
everything under the following MIT style license because I believe it is
effectively the same as public domain, allowing anyone to use the code as
they wish, including making proprietary derivatives.

Though I have put my own name as copyright holder, I don't mean to imply
I did the work. Essentially all work was done by Gerald Evenden.

I allways do a

ls /usr/share/licenses/common/

which gives me
AGPL Apache Artistic2.0 CDDL EPL FDL1.2 GPL GPL3 LGPL2.1 LPPL PerlArtistic PSF W3C
AGPL3 APACHE CCPL CPL FDL FDL1.3 GPL2 LGPL LGPL3 MPL PHP RUBY ZPL

if I am not sure about if a license is common in Arch's sense or not.
As you see, MIT is not common. So the license file is needed in this case.

It's kind of contrary to what is stated in PKGBUILD man page:
"pkgdesc
This should be a brief description of the package and its
functionality. Try to keep the description to one line of text and not use
the package’s name."
