Sad to see the obfuscatory term "Intellectual Property Rights" used
throughout, but based on previous discussion regarding the prevailing
attitudes of the XMPP Standards Foundation I can understand that now
is not the time to remove it.
Very good to see a functional minimum of SHOUTY CAPITALS in the
warranty disclaimer. Well done!

The terms as published would appear to me to result in works that are
DFSG-free, despite the noted problems with terminology. Hurrah!
Thanks again for your significant efforts in this area, and
congratulations on the progress made so far.
