289 - Require prices of all licenses to be disclosed in the license.
PC> If you insist on opening up this can-of-worms please open a separate issue. I predict that we won't be able to resolve this before Final Draft. (What we have now is a reasonable compromise. Let's see how it works in practice.)
SS> the text currently allows "reasonable" increase in price, which implies that the price is known to begin with. A change to the document requiring that prices be disclosed in the license provides necessary clarity allowing EG members to join an EG without first going through a price negotiation with the spec lead. This coupled with the requirement that an EG vote unanimously to approve a license helps ensure that a surprise "price increase" near the end of a JSR doesn't harm any particular EG member who has already made her contributions.
