For a license not listed at SPDX (as referenced in the copyright format
1.0 documentation) you will need to invent your own shortname. For a
license closely related to an SPDX license and therefore likely derived
from it, I would reuse the SPDX name with an added ~foo suffix, to
indicated the relationship. Here I would use "Expat~Digital".
