Dear Sirs,

I'm strictly against the inclusion of non-free protocols and the like in any
W3C standard. Anyone with a patented technology which should be an open (!)
w3c standard should instead grant an unrestricted right without any fee or
the like.

If not, just omit this particular technology.

The web worked because everyone could use and program it. Everyone, not
everyone with money for licenses.

Mit freundlichem Gruß,

Thomas Schulze
