The other parts, if they are approved as standards, will be non-patentable.

Not necessarily true. Many standards bodies will allow standardization of patented implementations so long as non-discriminatory licenses are offered. IOW, the patent holder will give a license to anybody who wants one at the same price they charge everyone else.

Life would be so much easier if we could just look at the source code. -- Dave Olson
