This last one is a big concern for me. What I've been seeing, and I
don't mean to suggest this is some intentional sinister scheme, is
that the confusion between the SPDX abbreviation system and the full
SPDX spec is being used to make the full SPDX effort look more viable
or popular than it actually is.
From my PoV, the abbreviation system is already an improvement,
if it's commonly shared with other distros (and Suse already switched to it).
