This is the "confusing" bit between sections 10.2.2 and 10.2.3 of the  
IPR policy [1].

10.2.2 (RF on RAND Terms) says that license terms *BEYOND* the common  
terms may be included.

10.2.3 (RF on Limited Terms) says that parties *MAY NOT* impose any  
further conditions.

Given this interpretation, the latter option seems better.

Jamie - have I interpreted this correctly?
