ohh, you're right Bijan, good point - we'll have to get both of those  
organizations to confirm there's no legal entanglements - both are  
W3C members, so we need to make sure that if either organization has  
plans to patent anything based on the use of that syntax. that there  
are no claims - I am not totally up on how patent policy and  
copyright play together in this stuff - Ivan and Sandro, what would  
we need to do?
