Hi Robert,

I'll add my warm thanks for the obvious effort and attention that you've
put into reviewing this draft too.  This is a non-trivial contribution
that I'm very happy to see.

The intention of this section was to make explicit that the authors are
granting additional rights to those of the TLP.  Similar to the grants
that were added in, for example:

The main difference here was a desire to be clear that the source code
components were not included in this additional grant and remained under
the usual IETF BSD licence for such parts.

While the TLP is fairly clear that the IETF avoids becoming involved in
making such additional grants and it is up to the document authors to
do so if they wish, there is no desire for this clause to add confusion;
so if there is better language that we should use there which fits with
the intent, then I'd welcome suggestions for how it might be improved.

I requested that this be added so that we could include this text in the
supporting documentation of the Debian packages for libopus, which we
would not be able to do without this additional grant of rights.
