RE: Patent controversy (was Re: (Second) Last Call for XPointer 1 .0)

Perhaps you can remind Nielsen of this:

"Many other sites try to entrap users inside their proprietary content and
rarely link to the outside world: if this continues, the Web will stop being
a web and turn into a set of disconnected medieval fortresses, each behind
its own moat. Let's maintain linking and open flow of information..." -
Jakob Nielsen - DaveNet

There are many ways to trap a user.  A patent is one.
