Full Potential: Who's counting?

Ian,

Who is tasked with measuring and reporting on how or indeed whether  
W3C is fulfilling it's stated objective?

Is this an external and independent body?

Where are their reports published?

regards

The first phase of the Web is human communication though shared  
knowledge.

The Consortium exists as a place for those companies for whom the Web  
is essential to meet and agree on the common underpinnings that will  
allow everyone to go forward.

http://www.w3.org/
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) develops interoperable  
technologies (specifications, guidelines, software, and tools) to lead  
the Web to its full potential.

http://www.w3.org/Consortium/org.html#public
W3C Members include vendors of technology products and services,  
content providers, corporate users, research laboratories, standards  
bodies, and governments, all of whom work to reach consensus on a  
direction for the Web.

http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Points/
  W3C's mission is to lead the Web to its full potential, which it  
does by developing technologies (specifications, guidelines, software,  
and tools) that will create a forum for information, commerce,  
inspiration, independent thought, and collective understanding.

Today this universe benefits society by enabling new forms of human  
communication and opportunities to share knowledge. One of W3C's  
primary goals is to make these benefits available to all people,  
whatever their hardware, software, network infrastructure, native  
language, culture, geographical location, or physical or mental ability.
