In chapter 4 Patent Advisory Groups (PAG), the section
"Incomplete Patent Disclosures" contains in fact the definition
of a complete patent disclosures. I suggest to rename the section
or to change the text as appropriate,

Thank you,

Incomplete Patent Disclosures

Patent disclosures are considered complete if every member in good
standing of the Working Group has filed a disclosure, through the
Member's Advisory Committee representative, that fits one of the
following descriptions:

   1. "To the best of my personal knowledge, my organization has no
essential patents."
   2. "My organization has patents that may be essential.", along with
an enumeration of the patent numbers.
   3. "My organization may or may not have essential patents. If we do,
we agree to license them on Royalty-Free terms to all implementers,
whether or not they are Members of W3C." This licensing commitment may
also be replaced with specific, Royalty-Free licensing terms.
