Do not send ANY IP or patent information to the working group. That is
inappropriate for any IETF working group. Furthermore no working group
within IETF can consider any IP or patent information except where the
claimant has formally notified the IETF through established procedures
of any claims on any protocol or process under active consideration by
the Working Group. Working Group cannot consider them, it's a legal
issue at that point and not a technical issue. The IETF can only issue
unencumbered RFC's.
