Without claiming to speak for the W3C in any way shape or form, and with
the disclaimer IANAL ("I Am Not A Lawyer"):

You can download that, and any other, page at w3.org and munge it to your
heart's content provided you do not re-publish it. You can even do a lot
more under international copyright law, but the specifics begin to get a
bit complicated after a while. Brad's most excellent FAQ above should give
you the general idea. In particular, you would probably be interested in
the concept of "Fair Use" in this case.
