The W3C has a [license for documents][1].
When someone participates to a deliverable produced by a group, this  
person usually accepts to produce a document under the rules of W3C  
Document License.

The papers of the workshop can be cited, but can *not* be reused to  
write the group document just like that (cut & paste). What the  
authors of the workshop papers want to do with them is entirely their  
responsibility. If they want to contribute big part of their papers,  
when the group and/or the editor think it is suitable for the group  
document, there is no issue.
