Disclaimer: I have been working at W3C, as an employee,  from 2000 to  

The W3C doesn't have an audit board, because it has its full  
community: The public, the members and the staff. And seriously, the  
Process document and work practices have evolved depending on the  
pushes of the community as large. The W3C is in perpetual evolution  
and that is healthy and it learns from its mistakes.

I don't claim, it is perfect, but the claim above seems completely  

Best Regards
