[standards-jig] Question on JEP-0001

I was proposing that as the default language -- no IP claims -- because
AFAIK there are no IP claims associated with any existing JEP. If and when
some future JEP author does have IP claim associated with a JEP, then we
will need to formulate a policy (or, naturally, formulate that policy
ahead of time). But I think for now this simple statement will cover
everything we have done so far. But I need to read David Waite's post
again more carefuly -- his mind works more like a lawyer's than mine does.
