[mkgmap-dev] License File <mapid>000_license.txt

Hi all, I notice that mkgmap creates a file named <mapid>000_license.txt
that contains the following text: 

Map data (c) OpenStreetMap and its contributors

This map data is made available under the Open Database License: 
Any rights in individual contents of the database are licensed under the 
Database Contents License: http://opendatacommons.org/licenses/dbcl/1.0/
Map created with mkgmap-r4473M

This does not seem to be displayable in either Basecamp or Mapsource and
does not contain the txt from my --license-file option. Can anyone explain
what this file is for and whether there is a registry setting to get
Basecamp/Mapsource to display it? Also whether there is a reason it does not
contain the text from the --license-file option?
