This reminds me... sometime last year, there was talk about W3C-branding,
where there would be some kind of logo -- sort of like Adobe's true
PostScript logo (the page curling up from a computer screen) or
Underwriter's Laboratories' (UL) logo. Seems to me that customer demand
could be created for such an accreditation, and perhaps "the Wilbur
concession" could be used as a steppingstone towards that...

Dan, did anything ever come of the logo talk?
