Perhaps it is more of a matter for the legal-discuss@ list than here...

But, I agree with Roland that this is not FoU restrictions. I find the 
formulation a bit odd, but think the intent is to ensure that the spec 
doesn't "evolve" beyond the control of OSOA. Especially since it 
mentions "Permission to ... make derivative works of ... Interface Definition 
Files".

IANAL,
