sa110>You do realise whoever loses may have to pay legal costs (as well as possibly damages). Do you think either party could afford this?

Don't be too confident my friend that ROL would win. Contracts are complex beasties and unless ROL were *scrupilous* in following the 1999 and subsequent 2004 one then they could wind up in a whole world of pain....

If it went against Castle - then what? RO5.xx effort stops from ROOL stops - you wind up with stagnation (you'll note for example that the ROL announcement about RO6.xx features got just ONE response on drobe after several days - while this thread has over 100 in the same time). The most dynamic part is the ROOL/RO5.xx effort - kill that off and well that's the whole thing well and truly banjaxed.

As I said before living with the status quo (the ambiguity) would be better.
