Chris, my personal kudos to you for not inventing a new license. Question:
could the additional IP grant be extended to "Google and WebM contributors"
rather than Google alone?
If you will have an Android-style contributor agreement for WebM, all contributors
would be granting you sufficient patent rights to extend the IP grant.
