I would like to request below license exception to be added to the SPDX specification.
This exception is popping up in open source project related the Swift programming language maintained by Apple.
Its text is close in intention to the LLVM-exception but lack the whole GPL-2.0 text found in LLVM.
License Full Name: Apache 2.0 Runtime Library Exception
Short Identifier: Apache-Runtime-exception-2.0

FWIW, I agree this is rather common in the wild.
It has been tracked and detected as "apple-runtime-library-exception"
in the scancode-toolkit since April 2018.
