re: https://www2018.thewebconf.org/call-for-papers/#copyright

CC BY 4.0 is nice, but why should authors hand over exclusive rights
(the copyright) over to IW3C2 or any 3rd party?

Is that the absolute bar to meet in order to contribute to "The" "Web"
Conference, and as a side effect be considered a scholar in 2018?

I'm not looking for the reasons why IW3C2 is obeying the 3rd party
publisher's requirements, but instead how IW3C2 comes to the conclusion
that this is a desirable thing for the community. Was there a survey to
investigate what may be appropriate for the community? If so, where is
the data? If not, did a few of you privately decide this for hundreds of
researchers?
