Embrace and Extend Redux or is it?

Interesting that MS is putting out their extensions to RSS on a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License (version 2.5). Is there a catch? They are known to want to embrace and extend, so what’s going on here? Are we seeing a change in the thinking in MS? Is someone sleeping there? Can we trust them?

Something tells me that these are signs that the MS corporate-think is going through a significant amount of turmoil. How it will settle is hard to tell. Are to see MS next open sourcing their OS thereby mimicking what Sun did in open sourcing not only their OS (and hence validating the Red Hat model) but their precious hardware as well?
