Hi Phillipe.

Do you know if the W3C as a whole has a policy for the license to use
for these Java interface files?  I imagine it would make sense to be
consistent about the licensing terms used.  I notice that the SVG 1.1
Java interface ZIP file did not include a COPYRIGHT.html file like the
DOM Core one does, so it seems that the SVG interfaces are licensed
under the unaltered W3C Software License.

The SVG WG are planning on, some time within the next month or two,
releasing a second edition of SVG 1.1 that has had the errata applied,
some of which include changes to the IDL and hence the Java interfaces.
So if a change in the license used were needed, it is a convenient time
for us to do so.
