The idea of communicating information about a mail object by use of a marking is "abstract" only in an alternative reality. What could be a more concrete idea? These patents should have been held invalid under 103, not 101. Right result, wrong reasoning, based on overly wooden interpretation of Alice

One can - and should - easily see that such an "overly wooden interpretation" of Alice means that NOTHING at all is protected from the "Gist/Abstract" sword.
