I've recently started work as a freelance web developer and have just read
the RAND proposal.

I am horified that this proposal is being considered.  It will reduce W3C to
another representation of a money-grabbing, corporation - a puppet of
Microsoft and the other corporations involved.  It will lose credibility in
the eyes of the developer community and public.  It will de-value the
fantastic work done to date.  I for one will not be adding W3C 'XHTML
Compliant' and 'CSS Compliant' buttons to my work if this goes through.

Please reject this proposal and continue with the 'world community' spirit
that I understood W3C represented.

Yours sincerely

David Laws.
