One other reason to have GPL 2+ in there by default is that it's KDE's default licence and with reuse stuff having the right licence text in the right place is quite faffy so it helps if that is part of the template along with the c++ etc bits.

Ade makes an interesting point, if Kitware wants to add the 3rd clause then they can just add it to the BSD-2-clause code which has been sent upstream. But adding in 3rd clause BSD in places could limit where it gets used. And if we use the wrong name for the author then it's incompatible anyway and blocks use.
I'm not a fan of BSD 3 clause because it often includes the name of the copyright holder, and that can get complex when new copyright holders come along or if you don't care much and just want to copy and paste.
As with generated code we might want to spread freedom and make it all GPL
Generated code isn't copyrighted as it isn't written by a person as a creative expression. So there's no licence needed for the general case.

"Do you think that this is a suitable way to produce content for the dot and eventually the announcements or are crucial features missing?"
