W3C process: was: ECMA TC 39 / W3C HTML and WebApps WG coordination


I have raised the issue[1][2] you outline with Ian Jacobs, the W3C   
Process working group and others at W3C,

It's my particular concern and thesis that authors and end-users,  
including those requiring alternative affordance
are not well represented on W3C working groups.

Why is there no W3C UA Games technology or WG?

[2] There are for instance a very large number of published comments  
raising similar concerns, regarding the technical language of  WCAG2   
- WAI, W3C.
