For the record: 
WAI does not have a formal 'membership', however all of the signatories
have involved themselves in various WAI activities in the past.

"WAI welcomes...

    * participation from around the world
    * volunteers to review, implement, and promote guidelines
    * dedicated participants in working groups"

[source: http://www.w3.org/WAI/ ]

As well, the fact that the signatories (volunteers all) are not all PFWG
members should in no way diminish the fact that a collection of
accessibility advocates, who have contributed to the W3C now and in the
past, collectively feel/felt that there is a real problem with process,
*AND* rather than just complain took constructive action to try and remedy
that problem.

Is there a problem with that?
