You are probably right. If the goal is to let anyone use the
graphics in any way they want, why have a license at all??

The main point is, however, that it is not completely clear how the
BSD license, a software license, applies to graphics. So maybe there
is nothing wrong with having the BSD license, but that is not really
clear to me (and perhaps others).
