actually, he didn't.  he was perfectly correct that "software" did not include
documentation, fonts, device firmware or other *DATA*.

if he was mistaken, then why was there any need to change the SC? certainly
those who voted for changing the SC must have agreed with him, otherwise they
wouldn't have bothered.  the same can be said for those who voted against the
SC changes, they could anticipate the consequences of the change and voted
against it.
