I think I've said this before, but as nobody else seems to want to throw 
the first rock, let me do it.. :-)

I don't think we can advance SSM unless we get a guarantee of RF licensing
or get a reasonably sure feeling that SSM implementations would not 
infringe the patent in question.

SSM is targeted as *way* too fundamental piece of technology, and locking
out those who are unable to do non-RF licensing (e.g. different open
source communities) is simply unacceptable.
