What you say here is not without links to reality. However, I think you 
make up the bill without the hosts. E.g. the WhatWg offer their own 
"web developers' edition" of HTML5 - which supposedly is "for people", 
as you say. Even HTML5 itself, as produced by W3, comes in two 
editions. I also don't think there is consensus that creativity should 
only happen within the WHATwg space. So while individuals within each 
group might agree with you, I don't think that whether the WHATWG or 
the HTMLwg subscribe to the model you present.
