Looks like their goal is to setup the GPLv3 that if your going to offer patent protections it is going to cover all uses of the GPLv3'd software including redistribution and reuse by third parties.
That is it's ok for Novell to offer indeminification for their customers, but it's also going to have to cover their customer's end users etc etc. That it can't be exclusive to people that pay you money.
