I wonder if the "I" is limited to the submitter, and/or the author,
and/or the contributors.

Hi folks,

Here's an excerpt from a note from Tony Hammond on the IETF URI Review
mailing list.  Kind of chilling stuff is suddenly required to publish
_any_ Internet-Draft.  Serious IPR conflicts, I think.

Tony Hammond wrote:

	According to the new procedure your I-D has to included some
statements. Please check the
	for more details.

The message was only posted out to ietf-announce at on June 17.

For example, _all_ I-Ds now need to start off with this statement on IPR
(bit odd because only the first person form seems to be allowed)

   By submitting this Internet-Draft, I certify that any applicable
   patent or other IPR claims of which I am aware have been disclosed,
   and any of which I become aware will be disclosed, in accordance with
   RFC 3668.

Food for thought...
