I recently got some help from the developer of "scancode-toolkit"
- an offline license checker. They suggested downloading a URL as
a "complete web page" (including JavaScript files) and scanning
the result to get all the license data. Additionally, they
consider any report mismatches between their tool and LibreJS to
be a bug. [1] [2]

I haven't tried it out yet, but this should be a useful tool for
automated testing (while LibreJS remains the appropriate tool for
actual browsing).
