The "may" aspect is most odd.

The Court has come down and explicitly (albeit 5-4) stated that the law MEANS (as in, right now, immediately, "this" is what the law IS).

The Office has NO flexibility to "guide" anyone to not follow the very clear letter of what the law IS.

The executive branch EXECUTES the law.

It does not get to decide that it will execute when/if convenient.

It does not get to decide that it will execute when/if convenient for those who have challenged patents.

It does not get to decide that it will execute when/if convenient for those who have had their patents challenged.
