VeriSign's legal has reviewed the documents and finds them satisfactory. The only minor comment was that the underlined part of the definition of "Compliant Portions" seems to be "strange" to use her words.
The only other piece of advice she had, and this is more a practice matter than anything else, is that there should be some sort of formal notification when someone withdraws after a draft specification goes out, in response to the draft specification. That's a big flashing warning sign that they may be intending to enforce a patent in connection with that specification.
Hope this is helpful.
