Ok it's what I was calling the young people ;) as 10 years is not old  
and because I don't think there's old professionals yet (The Web is  
not old enough for that). So we agree. :)

Yes but unfortunately, each time, someone wants to start a new best  
practices things, they want to create their own domain name, own  
layout design, own organization, etc. It's not necessary bad, but it  
creates legacy materials at a point.

The QA IG /should/ restart very soon. One of the aspect of the new IG  
is to be an open participation for creating such materials, with  
possibilities of participants to create W3C IG Notes. So that would  
be a good opportunity to create evolving materials that will be less  
inclined to be outdated.

Who will participate to the QA IG?  *YOU* (people of evangelist, www- 
qa and others).

If you are willing to participate and share :)
