Contrary to the Examiner's stated position (Final Act. 14--15), the burden did not properly shift to the Appellants to show that Alexander, when modified in view of the other references, would inherently possess the self-healing performance index of 0.1 as specified in claim 1. That would impermissibly require the Appellants to compare the claimed invention against the claimed invention. In re Tiffin, 443 F.2d 394, 399 (CCPA 1971) ("The examiner's composite process is appellants' process, and thus cannot be compared with it."). 

Rather, the Appellants can effectively rebut a prima facie case of obviousness by comparing the claimed invention against the closest prior art. In re Merchant, 575 F.2d 865, 869 (CCPA 1978).
