I have to agree with a number of other folks. Patent statements can not
be removed. It is probably reasonable to have a section for "apparently
not currently relevant" disclosures. But the disclosures, and the terms
therein, are still active. This is important for many reasons,
including confirming what was historically relied on, having available
information if a working group returns to an item, and other issues.
Adding annotations, and organizing information for simplicity and
clarity are fine. Removing information is not fine.
