last time I went through this w/ my legal advisor,
the general thrust was that the publication of the
ID involved a "contractual" set of obligations on
the parties. When I allowed ISOC/IETF to publish
my draft, they agreed tocertain terms/conditions.
One of those terms/conditions was a limited period
of publication, after which, the rights revert back
to the author(s).
Opinions expressed may not even be mine by the time you read them, and
certainly don't reflect those of any other entity (legal or otherwise).
