While I understand your motives, I wouldn't that lightly change author
While I personally think that Gavin would have no problem with that,
one never knows (maybe there are employers or other right holders
involved). If a script of this size has no license attached, you're
simply not legally allowed to use it - it's as easy as that.
If you want to keep it in the library, better change the Author back
to what it originally was and don't claim it to be MIT licensed where
it actually isn't.
Besides that, both files are available as part of rebXR (an XML-RPC
implementation for REBOL written by me), bundled with permission of
Gavin. rebXR is available at http://earl.strain.at/space/rebXR
