I've always thought that practice to be STUPID. It was
stupid 15 years ago and it is still stupid today.
The fact that you as an individual thing it is stupid (in uppercase
or lowercase) is irrelevant. Several large vendors disagree with
you. Their customers have gotten used to dealing with this and do
not consider it so onerous as to change to the other large vendors
who use a different licensing scheme.
If we can't agree that this practice is stupid, can we at least agree
that we can't let this impose restrictions on what we can and can't
do within the IETF?
