You might want to consider using something more general, like

I think "LicenseRef-license-text" is inappropriate as the different
texts have differing licenses so we need something finer grained.

LicenseRef-FSF-license-text would work for the FSF licenses and if
there were a standard we'd probably work to that. I don't think we're
in a position to try and build that standard though so we may have to
go the generic route until any standard emerges where someone collates
that information.

I had kind of hoped SPDX may be able to do that but I can understand
why it may be out of scope.
