Do you expect this field to be a string, or should it be encoded in some
special way (e.g., a keyword representation of the identifier)?

If we do the latter, we could check it but (a) this would bloat ASDF
further and (b) it would incur a maintenance debt in perpetuity as the
set of SPDX identifiers changes.

One more question: What if the software is NOT open source?
