It does not state that.  In fact, it states the opposite, and gives some, but
not all, of the conditions for doing so.  I doubt that the conditions can ever
be enumerated exhaustively, but for now feel free to treat as a working
assumption that agreeing to the W3C Patent Policy and granting a non-exclusive
copyright assignment and agreeing to the DiscussionGuidelines are a minimum set
of requirements.

It is my hope that the DiscussionGuidelines clarify this.  Everybody is on
probation.  Those that consistently can not follow these guidelines are not
welcome here.
