  RF on Limited Terms specifies the exact Royalty Free licensing
  terms and conditions that may be included in a patent holder's
  license and that must be granted upon request without further
  negotiations.

  With TCs operating under the RF on Limited Terms IPR Mode,
  Obligated Parties may not impose any further conditions or
  restrictions beyond those specifically mentioned in Section
  10.2.1 on the use of any technology or intellectual property
  rights, or other restrictions on behavior of the Licensee,
  but may include reasonable, customary terms relating to
  operation or maintenance of the license relationship,
  including the following: choice of law and dispute resolution.

The notification clause mentioned in the FAQ has been considered an issue
for the ASF, as it passes that obligation to downstream consumers of our
code.  Does that apply to UIMA?
