you should be aware that Community Groups have no "status"; anyone can propose one, and once enough people want to join, they start.  There are only 8 members of it, and I am not sure how many are active.


(I am not commenting on the comment, just wanting to make sure we understand that these are not W3C positions.)

I hope that the W3C has a better understanding of how the Internet is architected, anti-trust and copyright laws, and concepts of Internet freedom.  Let's not begin our face to face meeting by considering such nonsense.

With this small change in the dynamics, it would no longer be necessary to bend to stake holders that threaten to walk out because the market would open up to other networks that cater for users concern about their privacy.
