This is just the kind of thing the W3C doesn't need on it's hands. If 
it is to remain relevant it can not even begin to act as a cartel 
colluding with browser implementors in conflict with either users or 
authors. There is just no point.

I'm not a member of any working group, but I thought the point of W3C 
exercises was to create and maintain technologies for everyone, not 
ones which make only WG members happier. The WG members are not an 
accurate sample of the populace by a long shot and standards written 
for yourselves will only serve to diminish the W3C's valuable influence.
