Individually, many of us are very engaged in cutting edge research, creating inventions and dreaming of ways we can make the web more inclusive.

As a group, my understanding is that our role has been to survey all the techniques and tools that are out there, and throw our collective weight behind solutions that are implementable by *web authors* and also to inform them of *how not to interfere* with existing tools.

Once in a while we can push the envelope a little beyond those things, but I don't think we can stray too far beyond that role without loosing credibility.
