I believe, but it is a good point to make explicit that, from what I  
gathered from the RFC editor, the IRTF chair, and the IAB, that the  
non-IETF streams have the same requirements:

Full permission to create derivative works (with attribution) in most  
cases or, in rare cases, no derivative at all. As far as I know nobody  
has raised end-run concerns with the non-IETF stream.


PS: Note that the earlier message was posted to the IRSG list, the RFC  
interest list and the IETF list in the hope to catch the attention of  
the stakeholders of all the streams.
