 hmmm, well... the mesagl project doesn't have an issue, so there is a
lead to follow there

 basically from what i gather, it's if "compliance" is asserted
(without permission) that they could get antsy.  however, a libre
project, which *helps* the khronos group, is a different ballgame.

it'd be a good place to start, they might be able to help find the right person.
