Then, should the patent holders decide to
work with the W3C or other organization to create a standard binary
for XML, they will submit the patented materials as royalty-free
One other question: is it the case that review of the MPEG materials
to ascertain any potential infringement obligates the reviewer
to the terms and conditions of the patent holder? In other words,
is tainting directly inferred by the review?

I'm unsure, do you mean will patents held on parts of MPEG-7 BiM be removed
BiM? The decision is not up to me but I doubt it. If, however, as a
of the workshop the W3C decides to pursue work in this area then obviously
W3C rules will be followed.
