Per licensing@ discussion, change the license of HTML5 parser C++ files that'd be applicable outside Gecko to the same license as the rest of the reusable parser core, i.e. MIT.

r=gerv, assuming you are the only contributor, or you have sought permission to relicense from any other contributors.

I have sought (and gotten) permission from the sole contributor (Zbyszek Skowron) who I don't know to be a Mozilla Corporation contractor or employee (and whose single-line contribution I expect to overwrite soonish as part of fixing bug 502176).

Ben Newman contributed code as an employee of Mozilla Corporation and was OK with this change. David Baron contributed indirectly and hasn't expressed an opinion, but I assumed you (Gerv) were authorized to approve relicensing given dbaron's employment.

So all is OK here?
Yes, I'm authorized to approve relicensing of MoFo-copyrighted code (such as the contributions of employees and contractors), but would certainly pause in doing so if an employee objected. But, absent such objections, go right ahead :-)

Thanks.

It's fine with me, for what it's worth.
