If WSDL doesn't qualify as low-level infrastructure, this is hopeless

I would think that a standard for describing network services would qualify
as low-level infrastructure. Why isn't WSDL royalty-free?  How could anyone
be confident that W3C will continue to make useful specifications that are
unencumbered by royalties after you have already doomed web services?
