Want to add go-mode to prog-modes, OK?

With the recent support of character classes, thanks Aidan, go-mode
almost works out of the box now. With box meaning being part of the go
I have submitted a patch to the go-project that makes it work under
XEmacs 21.5 and GNU Emacs. I'll see if it gets accepted.
Nevertheless the I would like to add it to the packages. prog-modes
seems to be the natural place for it since it is just a single file
mode. (I know it ought to work with 21.4 as well but it doesn't.)
So the next step would be to update prog-mode.info and add some
autoload-statements to make it a proper citizen under prog-modes. OK?
There is also a copyright text issue. go-mode, as the whole go
project, is under the modified BSD-license. That is compatible with
GPL so that is OK. However there is no copyright text in the
go-mode.el file. What is the proper thing to do here? Add the LICENSE
text to the top of the file, just refer to it or do nothing?
