OK. Yikes.

I'm not really jumping to any conclusions when it comes to overall membership involvement. Far too little data. I think such low numbers bear the question though, and I'm interested in finding out some answers. Though that may be difficult.

And how does that not convey this type of W3C business is low priority/unimportant to their employer? If we assume most people know where their self-interest resides (yes, it can seem a big 'if' sometimes...) they'll prioritize AC votes and other related activity based on what they expect the return to be. Likewise, managers allocate time based on what they think matters to their area and so on. If they don't allocate any time to AC tasks, that'd suggest it's simply unimportant to their life. They can afford to ignore it.
