As a member who's very lax in commenting, as a graphic designer who is 
stunned by the logo, I find I have to comment.

For the side of a race car (memories of Dale Earnhardt), a sports 
jersey, or, as someone already aptly said, a Superman suit, it's 
great. But, I'm guessing that while it may have come from a graphic 
designer, it did not come from a typographer. I would have expected 
something more in line with various logos the W3C already uses and 
something that might have had a future as a validation button.

My early morning impulse (without enough coffee) was too hard to resist.

But, as we all say, at least once a week, "they didn't ask me!" lol

Apologies to all for this rant, however understated.
