PNG is already a W3C Recommendation, as of 1996.
And Apple, a W3C member, is only _now_ coming to periscope depth?
Isn't this against even the (weak) W3C patent policy?
Anyway, this isn't a "burn all" situation -- burn all is only when
the patent is actually earning money for the holder, and there'a
a superior alternative.
