I'm not familiar with this technology enough to be able to tell if these
tables can be generated easily through some algorithm, and/or whether
that algorithm is even described in the document. Help?
If the tables need to be incorporated into an implementation in order to
implement this technology, I believe the copyright license for the table
should permit such extraction into implementations. One approach to
solve the problem, which has been successfully used in several RFCs, is
to include text such as this (quoting RFC 3492):
Regarding this entire document or any portion of it (including the
pseudocode and C code), the author makes no guarantees and is not
responsible for any damage resulting from its use. The author grants
irrevocable permission to anyone to use, modify, and distribute it in
any way that does not diminish the rights of anyone else to use,
modify, and distribute it, provided that redistributed derivative
works do not contain misleading author or version information.
Derivative works need not be licensed under similar terms.
One could alter the text, for example to change 'pseudocode and C code'
into 'pseuedocode and data tables' (the document appears to also contain
several instances of pseudocode, and my comments apply to that part as
well) to make it more applicable. One can also restrict the
applicability of the liberal license to just the pseudocode and data
