Larry, Brian,

Just about this part:

This not a voluntary, unpaid position :) for W3C Members. 
When a person is participating under W3C Membership, the participation time is « paid. »  The person is still employed by a company which has decided to allow this participation. The person might do it in addition out of his normal company schedule, etc; the person might feel that she is doing it as extra work, but this is something in between the company and its employee. 

Just wanted to clarify by respect for people who invest time in W3C outside of any W3C membership.
