Ok... incompetent pooTosser (me) plays lawyer.
It is if they are setting terms and conditions
for access just a porn site disavowing responsibility
when you enter. They classify one as an
infringer by access even if from a site that
did not warn one but provided the URL (eg,
we copy it in our mail). So, if they want
to assert terms and conditions, they must
do it at the point of access, not on reference.
Otherwise, they only have a deal with the W3C
which is not being passed on.
Any way we cut the access issue, it ends up
being absurd if we assume that just reading
the piece contracts the terms and conditions
of infringement. If they can really do this,
then we better rethink our casual browsing
habits and put RDF files on other systems
to ensure that hidden contracts are outed
prior to traversal.
Now that's a kick: use the semantic
web to wall off the W3C. Ha!

But this is not a contract. It is Sun stating
that it will not sue you as an infringer if you:
1) don't sue Sun, 2) feed back doco to W3C.
