So, do you think we should only list the OSI template version, using

Yes, but I think the general trend for the SPDX initiative has been that
any difference in wording (with the possible exception of copyright
holder identifiers), even if it has no effect on the rights or
restrictions of the license, should be a separate and distinct license
for tracking purposes.

I happen to think that approach spirals off into absurdity, but that's
just my opinion. :)
