Of course. Good thinking. (or, limited thinking on my part)
Would be interested to hear if anyone has more details.

Hi Phil,
    I think that's just the drop down menu being shown (human readable), for selection.
Key is what's being stored (which is probably the short form).   But I'm just guessing here.

Hi Nuno,
    Thanks for flagging!

It¹s rewarding to see the keepers of such a popular platform tip their hat
to SPDX and to continue to encourage proactive license selection in
general. I/we pushed this hard with them several years ago and there
wasn¹t a lot of interest. I have to say, though, I¹m not sure what Mr.
Balter means by ³SPDX compliant.² They didn¹t go with the short names as
we had advocated, more like our long form names but abbreviated in some
cases (e.g. GNU GPL v2.0 vs. GNU General Public License v2.0). Still I
don¹t want to detract from the effort.
