RFC 3869, IAB:

"The principal thesis of this document is that if commercial funding 
is the main source of funding for future Internet research, the 
future of the Internet infrastructure could be in trouble. In 
addition to issues about which projects are funded, the funding 
source can also affect the content of the research, for example, 
towards or against the development of open standards, or taking 
varying degrees of care about the effect of the developed protocols 
on the other traffic on the Internet."


"Unqiue benefits for our Platinum Contributors

    * the opportunity to designate funds for sponsorship of specific 
Internet activities and projects."
