Having done all three (;-), you need to ask what outcome you are after  
and the best "home".

Stuff has always gone from 3) to 1) and 2)...and even jointly by 1)  
and 2).

My (biased) view is that stuff higher up the Web tree should be done  
at W3C, and lower level stuff at IETF.

Having said that, the Social Web has taken W3C by surprise (a good  
one) and I think it needs to change to be more reactive as well.
