The intended scope seems much broader than the technical standards that the
W3C deals with.  They intend to tackle regulatory and other aspects as well
as the technical standards.

In addition to the mentions of W3C, Tim Berners-Lee is explicitly credited
in the acknowledgements.  I'm betting the W3C doesn't see this as
competitive at all.
