I think it's a huge leap between "this file has no explicit copyright
asserted", and "this file is in the public domain".

Different files have different origins, and will therefore have
different licenses.  Equally, people may have made substantial (> 50%
of file changed) changes, in which case they may wish to assert their
copyright on the file too.
