Hi there,

I notice that the division of the W3C into its four domains is not made from
the w3c.org website.

The clarification and the definition of the relationship between domains and
goals would be a boon.


*** http://www.w3.org/WAI/about.html states:

   "WAI is one of four Domains within the W3C".

   But there is no suggestion of what the other three domains are...or any
link to such a definition.

   Perhaps "Domains" could be a hyper link to definition of the domains?


*** http://www.w3.org/Consortium/mission states:

   "W3C has these long-term goals for creating *one World Wide Web*:
      Web for Everyone      Web on Everything
      Knowledge Base
      Trust and Confidence"    Yet, there is no clear indication of how
these goals link to the domains.


*** Searching for "domain" in the W3c search reveals these top four domains
