I really don't like this change. It makes things more verbose for no
This issue has seen a a lot of discussion over the past year (going
back at least as far as May [1]). I'm also not wild about the change
(although there are *some* benefits), but discussing it should
probably be an issue for the spdx-legal@ list only (no need to drag in
spdx@ or spdx-biz@, and the spdx-tech@ folks are probably all
listening on spdx-legal@ anyway). I propose we continue this
discussion on spdx-legal@ only, and have only included the other
spdx-*@ in my message in case folks there are wondering where the
conversation went ;).
