I think this concern is unrelated to the topic at hand. This is not about
licensing issues with provided text, and such licensing issues can presumably
come up whether the text is "minor" or "substantive". This issue is
specifically about using a streamlined process for matters that the W3C Process
would consider "minor" changes.
