I think it is sufficient the trust be able to operate under any set of
outbound rights we come up with.
That won't be possible, given the current (and even the updated) IETF
The IETF may decide that third parties should be given rights to all
contributions, not only to RFCs/I-Ds.
Currently, the IETF Trust would be unable to comply to such a wish
from the IETF, because the Trust agreement prevent them from doing so.
explain please, I don't understand this.
To me, the new phrase "IETF
standards-related documents (such as RFCs, Internet Drafts and the
like)" clearly covers contributions to the standards process, i.e.
the same scope as RFC 3978. I don't see a problem here.
