so in the end is decided that the human readable format should be removed from the header?
to me either is fine, just to know what to do in future files

@mart the main argument chain here is: we need machine readable license identifiers to enable tooling -> SPDX markers are the way to go -> having both license statements and SPDX markers in the same file will ultimately lead to ambiguous licenses, since people will forget updating always both -> thus only use the SPDX markers
for making those markers easier to understand, there probably will be (in the near future) a generic licensing readme file (possibly as a replacement for the COPYING & COPYING.LIB files) that explains to the license users the meaning of the SPDX markers and where they can find the full license texts inside the repository; though, such a explanatory file is not yet in draft and thus have to be added in a later commit.
