I recently had a response from one contact in higher education who indicated that as things stand they would be unlikely to be able to contribute new research. This is due to what they saw as ambiguity over attribution and referencing to contributors of research in published W3C documents.

We’d discussed during last week’s call the importance of impact measurement of research on future research funding in the UK and in other countries. This response is an example of the potential effect of any inability to guarantee attribution of research that directly informs the creation of a standard (which would be considered significant impact of a piece of research). 

I think we need to discuss how best we can adjust the Expectation text to allay fears and ensure due attribution is provided where research contributes to the creation of normative or informative documents.
