No, because Apple states that they will comply to any patent policy the 
W3C or the IEEE may have.

However, it does day that if released outside those two organisations, 
Apple "makes no representations as to Appleā€™s willingness or 
unwillingness to license these IP Rights". In other words, they reserve 
the right to protect their intellectual property.
