I understand that, we did that some years ago. But the number of
contributions to those files seems rather small
and apparently it was once available under a different license:
so I thought you can maybe manage another change.

My understanding is the two licences are very similar, if you are providing your product in object format, you must make the source available upon request, and you must include derivative works in that source code.
Yes, I thought so too. But the point is not so much in the license
itself but it allows to license the code under GPL as well (an option
our users are using actively) so we strive to be compatible here too.
(Furthermore I thought it might be beneficial for WiX as a whole to be
easily usable for everyone.)
