What does licensing have anything to do with promoting standard? If the original TCP/IP stack was GPLed, people will still able to write the code from scratch using the TCP/IP standard.
Look at Linux, does it use the BSD'ed TCP/IP stack. Nope, it was written from scratch. It does not need to copy the BSD'ed TCP/IP stack. If Linux can do it, then other people should be able to do the same (i.e.: if TCP/IP stack was GPL'ed, people still can create TCP/IP stack from scratch using whatever license they want, it's a bloody standard).

Alpha 3 was just released on the 25th, and some testers are reporting that Apple iPhone and iPod Touch devices are now supported! You can now copy music to and from these devices, and browse them with a file manager. Instructions on how to do this with Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) can be found here.
