Google has just announced the Open Patent Non-Assertion Pledge: the company promises not to sue any users, distributors, or developers of open source products based on the patents it owns (unless first attacked).

I agree, this is splitting hairs. Google can have the promise cover 1 patent or 10,000 patents, they're Google's property.
