If you do feel strongly about this, then offer your help at the Web
Standards Project:

In particular, if you want to get internet design companies (and
others) to stop 'bastardising the net', you may wish to join one of
the Outreach Committees:

For various political reasons, the W3C is itself unable to campaign
for authors (of both browsers and web pages) to follow standards --
mainly because the members of the W3C *are* the browser makers. 

The Web Standards Project (the WaSP) has no such political problems.

(On the other hand, the WaSP is not a standards making body, that is
the role of the W3C).
