Since SPDX's effort to include all remaining approved Fedora licenses
in SPDX has stalled out (again!)[1][2], can someone *please* add the
FDK-AAC identifier to SPDX? It's blocking my submission of
fdk-aac-free to openSUSE[3] right now.

It is actively used in Fedora for fdk-aac-free[4][5].

If this can help we have tracked this in ScanCode for as long as I and
git can remember:
https://scancode-licensedb.aboutcode.org/fraunhofer-fdk-aac-codec.html
We use this SPDX identifier:
LicenseRef-scancode-fraunhofer-fdk-aac-codec
