[Article proposal] Benefits of SPDX licenses

Article Summary:

Explain the benefits of using SPDX schema for licenses.

Article Description:

A brief introduction into our previous Callaway system and that Fedora is migrating to SPDX schema.

A trivial example of two similar, but different licences. Why do we need different IDs for them?

A trivial example of two similar licenses where the difference is not important and how SPDX handles such cases.

Finish explaining how to handle licenses that we cannot or do not want to submit to SPDX.

It sounds good to me. However, I think this should probably be a CommBlog article.
