I'm a member of the Policy Advisory Committee for AUTM who reviewed and made suggestions to the AUTM et al. comments letter. I can tell that university TTOs consider these Myriad-Mayo Guidelines as being very problematical on many levels for academic research generally, and tech transfer specifically.
