Re: "X.org Preferred License"
I'm glad this topic came up, because I hadn't heard of spdx-license-diff before, and now I have it installed. That's a pretty good start to a Friday!

I’m also not sure of which SPDX tool you were using but I checked with the browser extension spdx-license-diff and I get a template match to MIT since the extra part is optional as described by Steve.
Of course if you do use the browser extension and you see missing template matches with it (which I find occasionally), I’ll fix it if you report it.

The MIT license template on the license list  has the language "(including the next paragraph)" as optional text, which is why that part shows up in blue italics on the list .
I think that's what you're referring to, but let me know if I'm missing something.
