Cory - I was curious why you refer to the patent application publication as a "patent" - you probably know this, but those are two different things. One doesn't know which claims, and in what format, would ultimately issue, if any.
So, I suppose I understand teeth-gnashing amongst those who care, but it might be a little premature. (Though you can watch the upcoming interactions between the USPTO examiner and the people prosecuting the matter if you go to the Public Pair website. It's at http://portal.uspto.gov/pair/PublicPair . After you pass the CAPCHA and type in the patent application number 14/064,613 you can see the Image File Wrapper. Again, probably stating the obvious, sorry!)
