That is correct but I the W3C text isn't very explicit.
There are copyrighted DTDs that use many of the
same elements and attributes as are in HTML and
predate it. <p>, <a>, <table>, <body> etc aren't
exactly novel stuff. So even parts of the text
and DTDs aren't that defensible.
Hmm? Should we be writing and copyrighting
schema as fast as we can in any domain we
can? Seems a lot more lucrative than squatting
on domain names.

I should have qualified this as derivation of technique, not derivation
of the text as a whole.
