That can't be changed by the W3C. The issue is the W3C on accepting
patented technologies into its specifications. It is possible that
part of the solution to the problem will be to explicitly define
the roles of specifications and standards and to explicitly declare
the W3C relationship by policy to each of these when a patented
technology is being considered.

I'm clamoring for no software patents please. And before you tell me
they have been there for years and I'm out of touch with reality: I'm
not in the US.
