w3process-ISSUE-42 (Patent Policy refs): Accurate and clear references to the Patent Policy

In his mail http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-w3process/2013Sep/0018.html Ian raised a couple of questions about the references to the Patent Policy:

 * 7.4.1.a and 7.4.1.b: "Publishing the First Public Working Draft
   triggers a patent disclosure request,"

   Please change this to "Publishing the First Public Working Draft
   triggers a Call for Exclusions" and refer to section 4 of the
   policy.

   Here's an example of one:
   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2013Sep/0028

 * 7.5: "A document published as a Working Group Note does not imply
   any licensing requirements, unless work is resumed and it is
   subsequently published as a W3C Recommendation. " This comes
   close to sounding like an IPR rule. Please delete.
