This is incorrect.  Since government funding was used in the
production of the DSSSL spec, it is therefore under public domain.

AFAIK, distribution of the DSSSL spec is perfectly legal.  Even
modification, although any modified spec should ethically carry heavy
disclaimers and notices so no one confuses it for the official spec.
