Thanks, but I did not really say that.

I said that if one wants to implement the ETSI TS 103 097 whose grammar
is free of access one still needs to pay IEEE for the 1609.2 grammar
because of that 'IMPORT' statement present in the former.  That is
between ETSI and IEEE.

I was not talking about RFCs and IETF.

But for RFCs it is clear as well: if one wants to implement an RFC one
must have full specifications fully at hand and for no price.  One would
need to pay the pipe to access it (i.e. the ISP), the computer to
program, the coffee, but not the document itself.

Probably.  I would need to check which policy one means more precisely.

But it is clear to me that IETF would not put out an RFC which needs
other closed documents in order to be implemented.

It is because one cant talk about text in I-Ds if we do not know the
contents of the documents that they refer to (if these are closed).
