So everyone should "reform" except the one party who has the problem?
The buck stops everywhere but here :-)

Personally I think that one of the best hopes for patent reform comes 
from the
recent US moves for better accountability.  When companies cannot inflate
their balance sheets (and VC finance applications) with exhuberant
valuations of junk IPR, the need for CEOs to support the US IPR system will
diminish, as far as software patents go at least.  Unreasonable IPR 
valuations
are a house built on sand.
