I'm not sure why this escaped me, but the reason this doesn't work,
provided you want to continue to contribute to the WHATWG, is that the
W3C prevents it. I was after this kind of setup in 2012, and Jeff and
Wendy told me in no uncertain terms that it was in violation of the
Member Agreement. I then became a non-Member, but the Invited Expert
and Collaborator Agreement prevents the same thing.

So if we are to go through with this, I would need to something in
writing from the W3C and IBM (the actual Member Agreements are private
and may have differences per company as I understand it) that this is
in fact okay.
