Yes *early* IETF standards were clean, but they are supposed to be the
guardians of the I in IETF, and have been delinquent by allowing IP
constrained standards.  Hence my comment that "the IETF has lost a lot of
credibility as an independent standards body, and really ought to be
ashamed."  They should be taking a purely hardline on IP, and requiring that
all IP related to every single IETF standard be effectively turned over, not
caving to commercial interests.
