Does it also matter that the original document was mine that you fleshed
out, in fact much of it is in my original document? 

I believe, as I said in IRC that this kind of document should be
released under a creative commons licence and really shouldn't have a
single 'copyright owner'. I care little for copyrights personally but
the SRS doesn't really bode to well in the commercial market anyway so I
can't see anyone profiting from it. It would be nice to see attribution
though.
