(This is probably more apporpriate for cap-talk, but that seems dead.)

Being too lazy to read the patent, I'm not sure if it would apply to URLs
with swiss number capabilities in them, because it talks about the
"recipient" a lot, which is something that pure capabilities explicitly
don't care about. But I figured folks on this list would be able to figure
out whether it's important or not.
