Also notable is the patent grant:
You grant to Us a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, transferable, royalty-free, irrevocable license under the Patent Claims, with the right to sublicense...
That's a bit different to a commercial patent grant. Firstly, you don't get access to the patents of "Us" in return. Secondly, you can't terminate the patent license should "Us" sue you concerning one of their patents.
I wonder if either of those terms commonly seen in commercial agreements is worthwhile for a free software agreement. I'd argue that the second term should very much be included.
