Not really. A more reasonable conclusion is that the process of  
decision-making in the HTML-WG is generally glacial, although fortunately  
there have been a few cases where it moves as fast as snail's pace - so  
for example there are real issues that show no sign of being resolved by  
the group within a year of the editor making a "pro tempore" decision that  
the group may or may not overturn, but there will at least be a  
specification draft after only 9 months.
