I'd imagine though that the patent claim only applies to the USA
(were there any references to non US based patents ?).

Mind you, I'm not sure why anyone would really want to use CxF.
Compare for instance E1200408.Q60 to e1200408.cxf. It seems to
exemplify an inappropriate application of XML - bulky, cumbersome for
machines to parse, and unreadable to humans.
