Speaking of tools, should we include SPDX tags alongside the full text
of all our licenses, as that is yet another thing that aids
license-checking tools?


However, for clarity, I think it is wrong to rely on SPDX tag only in
place of the full license text; adding the one-liner SPDX should be
just that, an additional line.
