[802SEC] RevCom submission/Patent Policy

Dave -

Item 12 A on the current RevCom submittal form help notes 
appears to violate the statements made on the first slide of the current 
patent policy slide set (that WG Chairs are supposed to use at their 
meetings) that states specifically that "neither the IEEE, the WG nor the 
WG Chairman ensure the accuracy or completeness of any disclosure or 
whether any disclosure is of a patent that in fact may be essential for the 
use of standards under development".

It would appear that checking the YES box on the 12 A section of the RevCom 
form would violate current patents policy, as it could be construed as 
making a determination of the applicability or otherwise of any disclosures 
that have been made.

Any views?
