Note that while Chris undoubtedly has a lot of interesting opinions  
on the topics you listed, the W3C clearly defines the role of a  
working-group (co)-Chair, not so much as a decision-making role, but  
as an organization [1] and consensus-buildind [2] role.

For those new to W3C, I would recommend giving the Introduction of  
the process document [3] a look, as the Process is very much the law  
and spirit of the land.
