Yes, understood. Thanks, Dick. For that use case, the President was more concerned with a cyber attack that a license violation. This is the point of evolving SPDX to be “configurable” with profiles to meet different use cases.
Minimal SBOM elements specified by NTIA for Executive Order (EO) 14028 do not include license data element requirements (see attached). The EO and the NTIA SBOM minimal elements focus on Cyber risk, i.e. C-SCRM, whereas license management is a Legal/Financial risk.
The use of SBOM for license legal risk management is indeed a good practice, but it is not required to satisfy NTIA minimal SBOM requirements for EO 14028.

Thanks, Matija. Absolutely not just license compliance. Security too is a big driver and an important part/direction of SPDX.
