Good point, didn't mention larger CMSes as a category. As you say, Drupal
is a significant player in this space, and HTML WG has Everett Zufelt, who
is the Drupal 7 Core accessibility maintainer.

DocBook creator Norman Walsh is an HTML WG member. DITA and the DITA
Open Toolkit were produced by IBM, who have representation on the WG.

I'm not really sure what form TEI representation would take. TEI
seems to be managed by a series of academic institutions, who have some
overlap with HTML WG in the form of Oxford and Stanford universities.

Judging by this sig, I think it's fair to count you as part of the
representation of the XSLT category on HTML WG. ;)
