Hello:  food for thought:

As Charles Hixson commented on Friday, 25 Jan 2002:

"As you may be able to tell, I feel quite strongly about this.  And I 
consider the issuance of pseudo-standards as if they were the real thing to 
be unacceptable and corrupt behavior in a standards body.  It's more what I 
would expect from a marketing agency, - - -"

At what point is the w3.org group, nothing more than a marketing agency?  In 
my opinion, you've reached that point.  By the way, is it true, what he says, 
that you have only two Open Source representatives, and the rest are all 
corporate employees?
