You would have to ask the ECMA that, but I'm guessing some kind of "verbatim 
copying only" license that is common with standards documents.  The All.xml 
file, and the associated example code snippets, were originally extracted 
from the Microsoft documentation for C#.

It is probably OK to convert it into HTML for viewing purposes (no one has 
objected yet).  But anything else is playing with fire.  In Copyright matters 
it is best to assume that, absent an explicit notice, you can't do anything.
