I agree. That change is offensive. It gives credit to dozens of people who 
have done basically nothing productive at all, for work that a few of us 
have spent years doing.

I find the W3C's behaviour here to be increasingly "out of control", as 
someone I spoke to recently put it. It's discourteous and uncivil.

If the W3C wants to write their own specs then that's fine, but stop 
forking work done by other people who have no interest in working with 
the W3C at this time. This is just plagiarism.
