W3C is basically a standards body and standards are very much about 

Most standards document existing orthodoxy.  Those that don't specify a 
new orthodoxy

Either way, orthodoxy is desirable for standards.  In English, saying 
the "orthodox way of doing" has a similar, if more critical, meaning to 
saying "the standard way of doing".  The implied criticisms is one of 
standards, as a whole.
