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?
