   The point is that although people like Ian and Dave, through the
formation of the WHATWG, are largely responsible for pressuring the W3C
into forming this working group, they are now being excluded from
positions in the group because their actions were politically
inconvenient. (In fact, I think the word "inconvenient" was used in the
Babylon 5 episode I referenced.)

   Perhaps what we need in this group is the Beast of Tenagra. ;)
