If the IP template should be RTC then it should be moved into the
policy area. But IMO the incubator is not the right place for
normative legal policy: the legal committee should maintain policy.

I agree with Roy. The educational aspect obscures the function. The
current template is in need of revision since it satisfies neither

But I don't have the energy to push through any policy changes ATM.
Just revert the changes and open another JIRA...
