It's sad to see such a widely respected defender of open standards succumb
to the greed and paranoia of some of its members. W3C is also sending out a
dangerous message: patented technology is OK. I hope W3C members realize
what this could do to intellectual freedom in general on the Web, in software
development and elsewhere.

Please reconsider!
