SPDX looks good - how there been any interest to implement this at Apache?

BTW I see their NOTICE file has a few issues :-) [1] (It mentions Apache, MIT and BSD software).
What we put in NOTICE is policy right rather than a legal requirement so I guess 3rd parties
can do just about anything and that’s OK?

A fair number of non ASF Apache software is usually missing a NOTICE file or has other issues.
What do we do when you bundle a non ASF Apache license software that is missing a NOTICE file?
Nothing or be a little more polite or assume a minimal NOTICE file and add that to ours?
