The license I get to by following the URL above states (amongst other
things):

"This license includes the right to discuss the Specification (including
the right to provide limited excerpts of text to the extent relevant to
the point[s] under discussion) with other licensees (under this or a
substantially similar version of this Agreement) of the Specification.
Other than this limited license, you acquire no right, title or interest
in or to the Specification or any other Sun intellectual property, and
the Specification may only be used in accordance with the license terms
set forth herein."


IANAL but that doesn't appear to give us rights to implement the spec
via that source?  What am I missing?

Regards,
Tim
