If there is a GNU policy on this, I would follow it.

Personally I think there is little point to it. SPDX arose in the Linux kernel,
where there is (or has traditionally been at some time) a sloppy attitude
regarding copyright and license headers.
In GNU, the systematic use of a license header in most files alleviates the
problem to a large extent.
