Patent terms unacceptable

I'm sure that I'm not the only one who feels this way, but the terms given
to use XPointer without getting sued by Sun are unacceptable. XPointer
either needs to remove any infringing functionality, get a patent license
from Sun that contains no strings, or invalidate Sun's patent. The precedent
this specification will set is not a road I want to go down.
