the W3C does have a browser guidelines slash compliance document: 
UAAG, the User Agent Accessibility Guidelines, version 1.0 of which 
is a W3C Technical Recommendation:
[http://www.w3.org/TR/UAAG10]

although the User Agent Accessibility Working Group belongs to the 
Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) domain, it stresses the importance 
of interoperability and strict conformance to specifications.

Guideline 6 of UAAG explicitly states:

quote 
source: <http://www.w3.org/TR/UAAG10/guidelines.html#gl-accessible-
interface>
Guideline 6. Implement interoperable application programming 
interfaces
unquote

while Guideline 8.2 simply proclaims:

quote
source: <http://www.w3.org/TR/UAAG10/guidelines.html#gl-accessible-
interface>
8.2 Conform to specifications
unquote

the UAWG (User Agent Working Group) is currently drafting UAAG 2.0; 
you can find out more about UAWG work at the UAWG home page:
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/UA/>

i encourage you to monitor and join their work - new ideas and fresh 
perspectives are always welcome in any WG -- or, at least, SHOULD 
be...

gregory.
