  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.

If downstream users of the code must notify IP holders in order to gain the
IP grants, we have an issue.  If downstream users automatically receive the
IP grants, we're fine.
