Interesting. It would seem, for example, that companies that include
portions of the printer MIB text in company documents listing full MIB
support, without author permission, are in violation of the restriction
against using IETF material in derivative work. 

On the other hand, any document published as an RFC but created outside of
the IETF standards process (e.g., the PWG?)is not covered by the IETF policy
but by the RFC Editor's applicable policies.. which presumably can change. 

Thanks Ira, I think.
