Out of curiousity, why would you want a proprietary-format copy of the paper?

Dear all,

I've looked at the click-through license of the Microsoft Public
License. The license has some viral effects and if the specification
you are producing here will re-use parts of Microsoft's document, we
may end up in a situation where the Recommendation would also have to
carry the MS-Public license because of the click-through.

I would rather like to avoid such a confusing situation. So if this
document is not only for reading, I would kindly ask Microsoft to
provide the document either in member space or in public space as a
contribution within the framework of the work of this group. This
would allow all to work in the context they expect. The contribution
can be done by sending the document to the mailing-list or adding it
to the wiki with a comment that it is designated to be input and
contribution to the WebAPI work.

Would that be feasible? I think that was what Art requested in the
message cited below.
