Actually, this is the paragraph that scares me:
>5. In no event shall Sun or You be obligated to extend the covenant not
>to sue granted hereunder to any product not incorporating a fully compliant
>implementation of the XPointer Specification, or to that portion of a
>product not incorporating a fully compliant implementation of the XPointer
>Specification regardless of whether a fully compliant implementation of the

is this supposed to ward off microsoft ? :) What if some open source
developers decide not to implement ranges because they can't be
bothered, but producing a good product otherwise? Will they be sued?
Sounds a bit like control-freakery to me..
