I would define it as: using any kind of patent in any kind of litigation.
So it would be for companies that are willing to give up exclusive use of every possible invention in exchange for the same from other members. I can definitely see how most of the current OIN members would not be interested in that. OIN restricts itself to certain kinds of inventions, but the members still get much use out of patents on other inventions.
I note that major patent holders frequently lobby for patent law changes, but they never argue for eliminating patents altogether.
