Re: OpenChain Specification 1.1 draft updates & status

Please insert the reference to SPDX documents back into the specification in section 4, and leave the definition in the specification.   Dropping it is not yellow lined in the 1.1 version of the specification, and not providing an example on how these artifacts can be distributed in a consistent manner weakens the overall story.

Also we should also consider removing the definition of SPDX since it's no longer specifically referenced in the body of the spec itself.  Credit to Jeff Kaufman from Redhat.  Thanks,
