Obviously, I'm not a lawyer, but I would note that the _DSD bindings
aren't going into the core ACPI document. I think the specifics for non
members of the UEFI to potentially contribute bindings need to be
addressed. That said, at this point, the population of the UEFI forum is
very well aligned with initial players (that this is the case is not
entirely an accident, I went around to a few folks a year or so ago and
made sure that they had become members in anticipation of this issue).
