Thanks for this, Gary! I added a few comments in "suggestion" mode in the document. I like the direction the revised model is heading, and will be interested to get feedback from folks who weren't able to attend the call last week.

For clarity, note that this is about a _draft_ discussion for proposed revisions to the license expression syntax / model for SPDX 3.0. For comparison, the existing model in SPDX 2.2 can be seen in (in the lower-left-hand corner, with the "AnyLicenseInfo" class and its children).
