It's an advice; I was referring to the lack of weight our decisions
seemed to have in the past; since this one is backed by the AB, I expect
people will take it seriously. As a matter of fact, though, if one
doesn't follow the proposed guidance, one is likely to lose a lot of
times in debate, getting the lawyers discussing together, etc.

Well, if you look at the proposed solution, it is quite close to the one
we produced; as a matter of fact, I know the AB decision was built upon
the work we did on these topics; they simply made a restriction on the
licenses for the test cases.
