Re: exFAT

They have said it will be included in a future version of the Open Invention Network Linux specification, so the terms can be found here, https://www.openinventionnetwork.com/joining-oin/linux-system/ however it's not listed yet, so I'd take this to mean it's not yet covered. There are various categories and tables here, which I'm not very familiar with, however there seem to be exceptions for a raft of applications, mainly Sony and Philips exceptions (PVR, EPR, lighting control). Which at least is less grey than 'non-commercial'.
