"The W3C was created to lead the Web to its full potential by developing
 common protocols that promote its evolution and ensure its
 interoperability"

I don't believe patented technology is compatible with the stated goal of the 
W3C.

I am also concerned that the RAND license will prevent free software - Linux, 
BSD  Mozilla, etc. - from complying with W3C standards.

Sincerely,

Bill Hackett
