Is this something that Google might be willing to bend somewhat? I.e.,
when you're on the CG you're a free-agent and not representing Google?
Or, for the sake of politics, could it be worked around in that
instead of joining the CG you keep track of things via the RSS feed
(it is after all public) and post to the WHATWG mailing list with
"observations" every once in a while - as long as core CG members know
to keep an eye out that's not necessarily a huge problem.

I dunno, politics complicates stuff. And patenting open-web stuff to
me seems wrong on any number of levels.
