What's the point of including it on the document when it's not finalized and
has potential patent claims?

No, I disagree, we should clearly indicate that there are IPR claims, and
take no position on their validity.

Then we provide the best information we have as an organization, and this
may result in people becoming more aware of patent issues, and either
quashing them or ignoring Opus as a result; either is fine.
