I'd suggest that to SPDX but if they don't change just put in something
that Foo-1.2 implies Foo-1.2.0 or even Foo-

The rest of it I agree, the only thing is that any differences should be
documented somewhere so when someone comes along to this standard they
don't have to trawl debian-project email archives to work out why
we have GFDL and SPDX has FDL (for example).
A reference somewhere stating the differences would be enough, perhaps
not in DEP5 itself, but somewhere, such as the wiki.
