W3C has launched the Data Driven Standards Community Group:


The Data Driven Standards Community Group focuses on researching,
analyzing and publicly documenting current usage patterns on the
Internet. Inspired by the Microformats Process, the goal of this group
is to enlighten standards development with real-world data. This group
will collect and report data from large Web crawls, produce detailed
reports on protocol usage across the Internet, document yearly changes
in usage patterns and promote findings that demonstrate that the current
direction of a particular specification should be changed based on
publicly available data. All data, research, and analysis will be made
publicly available to ensure the scientific rigor of the findings. The
group will be a collection of search engine companies, academic
researchers, hobbyists, protocol designers and specification editors in
search of data that will guide the Internet toward a brighter future.


In order to join the group, you will need a W3C Account. To request one:

W3C Community Development Team
