HTML recommendations just for passing time?

Hello.

I notice that none of the HTML 4.0 html-pages follow your own
recommendations.  All but one lack doctype, and the one that doesn't
does not pass validation acc. to its doctype.

Does this mean that W3C is not taking its own recommendation very
seriously, and that W3C is just a place for some people to spend their
time inventing recommendation that noone really cares about, especially
not the people that did the recommendations in the first place?

Why should anybody care about HTML 3.2 and 4.0 since obviously you
don't?  If it is too hard for you to make HTML-pages acc. to your
recommendations, why bother with the recommendation in the first place?
