Thanks, and that's ok :)

My experience in the read write CG, is that the TAG has been generous in helping us design standards and understand existing ones. I've been fortunate enough to have several interactions, both on list, and off list, and most of the members I've reached out to, have been kind enough to offer guidance.

That's excellent to hear. Despite what the reality is, the point I was trying to make was that developers should not see the TAG as an ivory tower (or something to make funny pictures out of): they should see the TAG as an ally in creating a better Web for all (particularly on the architecture side, which for historical reasons - and no fault of the TAG - is a bit of a mess).
