I would not, and it isn't. There is a wide variety of things possible
to do against standards covered by patents that would not be a good
idea, including but not limited to writing licenses that are non-free
out of a misguided attempt to prohibit them. This isn't an academic
concern, it's a real problem that we've been facing for quite some
time now.

Action based on rational evaluation of the consequences *only*, please.
