How many Working Group participants who vent on patent issues have
read RFC 3669?
Of those who have read it, how many consider it to be binding?
It's not binding because it's Informational. However, the topic is
frequently covered in WG Chair training sessions. There's a prominent
link to IPR issues on the WG Chair's page, including a separate Wiki
just on IPR (and the introduction page there explicitly cites 3669).
That's not a substitute for all WG participants knowing it, but I'd
guess that most chairs do, and can bring it up as appropriate.
