In principle this comes down to a process issue that we have to raise  
through W3C management. (Roughly) the licensing agreements are part of the  
Process as agreed by the members from time to time, and these are in turn  
part of the contracts that make W3C exist, so it might take some time to  
chase down.

Anyone want a nasty lawyer-oriented action item?
