I really oppose RAND Licensing.   It will allow companies like Microsoft 
to make open software companies like apache and Linux to pay fees for 
using internet statndards. If this is allowed the free and open internet 
is lost and the open and free, part, which w3c would not be a part would 
have to create and internet on there no connection to the corporate 
wourld. Please Capitalism from destroying the internet.
