It looks like that is for the 2009 version of the standard. There's a newer 2015 standard.
Regardless if you look into the code (for example the code Rob checked in for 2015) you'll see that wix sets a lot automatically like the software version, software name (you can override with the name attribute), software unique ID, manufacturer name (which it gets from burn or mis), ...

Subject: [wix-users] SWID Tags
With Wix 18.104.22.1686 I am investigating adding swid:tag back into my Bundle. I found a draft of the spec at:
(and the page that took me to that link warned that he link might be broke when a new draft is posted by NIST.)
I find the draft rather confusing with lots of MUSTs, which I don't see a way to set using the WixTagExtension. (To be fair I have not compiled this yet or installed it so, but I don't know how wix would know some of this stuff without entering it.
So for the following example form the spec, I guess I would use the following wix authoring. Does this seem correct?
Does the 'globally unique tag identifier' get generated?
Seems like Entity/@role is required ?
My bundle install 32 bit apps, 64 bit apps, and app data files. It seems like I should only set the 32 bit install location. Is that the intent?
They also talk about the importance of signing the tags, particularly a "Corpus" tag, but I get the sense that WixTagExtension only supports a "Primary" or "Patch" tag and not "Corpus" or "Supplemental".

Thanks for all of the work. The business does not require that I use SWID tags yet, but I would like to do it properly so just looking for advice.
