Regarding Recommendation 3, it seems to me that there are two key
elements: 1) strings that may infringe existing legal rights and 2) the
selection process that may infringe existing legal rights.  If I am
correct, then we need to include both in this recommendation and I think
we started working in that direction yesterday.
