RE: ISO intellectual property (was Standards)

Both Common-XML and Minimal-XML are subsets of XML, so I guess the same argument can be made that SML-DEV misappropriated W3C's intellectual property.  Right or wrong, its a twisted trail.
It was my understanding that W3C has trademarked the word "XML" and copyrighted every specifications it produces.  If my understanding is right, then W3C is claiming ownership over some words and a growing set of specific word sequences, not ideas nor concepts.
I care less about intellectual properties and more about good simple designs.  For the past couple of weeks, I have been looking at SNMP in detail.  I don't know about you guys, but SNMP goes in the same basket as SGML.
