W3C matters because it has promoted open standards and patents for the
global good.  I've always thought this is W3C's primary mission, and it
has been widely successful.

Now, with the near breakbown of browser compatability, or even network
compatability, W3C is threatening to worsenthe situation by sellling and
patenting the specs??

This will not only make W3C mostly irrevalent, but it does exactly the
opposite what we need from W3C today.  Without reinvigorating open
standards, the WWW which W3C helped make possible, will be a propiatary
only space with a complete lack of individual innovation.

Your burrying free software, and free software is the reason for the
internet and the internet economy.
