+1 to striking that. We should evaluate each reference and determine whether it advances our work. There may be
different reasons to choose a reference (e.g., we might want to refer to a widely accepted de jure standard in
one place, or an emerging specification from a de facto group that clearly has broad adoption in another).

I would think of “Recognized by W3C” as something demonstrated after we create a reference rather than something
a priori that constrains how we choose references.
