Quoting from that:

"Patents. Microsoft has patents that may cover your implementations of the
technologies described in the Open Specifications. Neither this notice nor
Microsoft's delivery of the documentation grants any licenses under those or
any other Microsoft patents."

MS is not a standards body, and their having published something doesn't mean
it's been peer-reviewed, or even implemented!  I don't see any guarantee that
if Apache implements exactly what's written, it really will interoperate with
MS technology.  Maybe there's a test suite, but who would look that far after
reading the patent threat?
