Those excluded files are intended to be only ones we're pretty certain will
never need to be edited; these two files may well contain lines that need
changing for each release. In particular, README.vms has, in maint,

    vmstar -xvf perl-5^.10^.1.tar

So I've removed those two entries with d10dbbde5af437ee9bff3d0cf76eed1bb8410b9d
