Somebody at the Open Group would probably be the final answer, but I think
use of the POSIX data is on a per-OS basis, same as, say, the UNIX
trademark.  If FreeBSD went through the Single UNIX certification process,
DragonFly would not automatically become able to use the trademark too. 
The POSIX data is I assume in the same vein.
	Yes, absolutely.  We cannot use the information directly from
	the standard into DragonFly's manual pages.  I am going to
	contact someone at the Open Group and see what I can finalise.
