RE: (Second) Last Call for XPointer 1.0

The Unisys IDE/AS and USAMICOM (United States Army Missile Command) IADS 
programs used the frame tag to achieve precisely the same effect 
in the early nineties.  

It would be somewhat Karmic to see Unisys used in a prior 
art argument.  The US Army might prove to be a tough problem 
for Sun lawyers.   Civil servants are relentless customers. 
XPointer will be DOA.

There's a much more significant issue raised in this draft for the 
first time than the question of how to map namespace prefixes. It's 
also come to light in this draft that Sun claims a patent on some of 
the technologies needed to implement XPointer.
