Being an ECMA standard doesn't actually guarantee much at all. It only provides a standard which, in its current form, can be freely implemented by third parties like mono. In light of future developments, however, it doesn't guarantee anything. The extensions made to this standard can and most likely WILL contain patented technology.

This means that if mono wants to keep up with .net on the long run, they'll have to start paying royalties to Microsoft.
