What a crock. There is nothing in the new patent policy that encumbers Open Source developers from using their formats. I could see it if OASIS was allowing these members to patent the unmodified protocols but seeing as thats not happening, just tell em all to go to hell. If OASIS members do get patents on modified versions of the OASIS protocols then so be it, but there is nothing in the new patent policy that states that the OSS community has to support those modified protocols.
