I honestly don't know the specifics about MIPS.  I have observed this 
discussion, concerning CPU openness, take place easily a dozen or more times on 
different Internet forums and mailing lists.  Anytime someone make a comment 
about the openness of SPARC, someone jumps in in defense of the openness of MIPS.

I suppose that I would comment at this point, that my intent to list both is to 
show non-bias and/or lack of presentable evidence to prove to mailing list 
members that the MIPS platform is more open than SPARC.
