FWIW, I've made a point related to patents and Microsoft's covenant not to sue, on Brian Jones' blog, the point being that if, as various ODF boosters allege, Microsoft's Office Open XML requires various Microsoft-specific software technologies eg ActiveX, in order to function, how can we know it's safe to re-implement them on other OS platforms? We don't have a covenant not to sue for re-implementing ActiveX.
