What Joe English said. I didn't see any implication of transfer of
ownership to WS-I. They say they can do what they like with
feedback. Unless stated otherwise, you can do what you likes with
your feedback as well. Seems equitable, and no more scary than a
viral open source licence or the way Linus Torvalds handles kernel
And anyway, is anyone going to use their stuff?
