No to RAND

RAND would destroy the usefulness of W3C. The Internet and the web have 
been built upon license-free technologies, and both owe their success to 
this policy. Allowing proprietary, licensed, technologies in W3C 
recommendations would block many of the most innovative applications 
developed through the open source community.

Just because the U.S. PTO has lost touch with rationality is no reason 
for W3C to follow suit.
