Currently, the W3C staff does not have a security expert given the
departure of Thomas Roessler and there are very few people that are
really qualified: have the years of experience with industrial-scale
deployment, threat models, etc. really needed given the urgency of the
situation.

 While I think W3C can co-operate effectively with the IETF and other
bodies - along with the great amounts of expertise and talented
individuals in WebAppSec and WebCrypto WGs -  to provide security
reviews of specs, having security expertise on the TAG is one way to
strengthen the W3C in this regard.
