Thanks. I remember having a long discussion about this with Mark while
he was still living nearby, but none of it is documented on the review
ticket unfortunately.

I'm not sure about this as I really don't want to include the full
headers. How much of the email is actually required?

It's probably best to add a comment in the review ticket every time you update
your package, giving the urls to spec file and the new package.

FWIW, the intent here was to remove any doubt that the copyright holder
had given licensing permission, to the extent required if a hypothetical
case ever went to court.
