Re: documentation/examples of License Ref?

Hi Luis, hope you (and others) are staying safe and healthy as well.
Echoing Kyle, "LicenseRef-" is part of the spec syntax and is defined in Appendix IV of the spec.  In an actual SPDX document, it would be defined in a corresponding "Other License" section. 
In the v2.2 release of the spec (for which a release candidate was circulated this morning), the spec now explicitly clarifies that LicenseRefs can be used in short-form identifiers in source code.  REUSE has also implemented this in their spec and described a mechanism for including the corresponding license text directly in a repo.
Hope this helps!
