I know of no relevant patents. If you're asking us to include the
quoted "An individual who ... W3C Patent Policy" text in our next
Status of this Document section, certainly. Thanks for the suggestion.

And Arthur, while we appreciate the attempt at humor, "UniMess" is not
our favorite abbreviation ;). Among ourselves, we've been using "UM".
Hence the change of subject.
