The developer community isn't monolithic. I think the TAG's always had some
representation from parts of the developer community. It's just not had as
much from the people in the developer community doing client-side
development of Web applications using JavaScript and browser APIs, or the
people who are actually writing the specs for those APIs, or the people
implementing those specs in browsers.

Another change it seems to have brought is that it's helped to raise a lot
more awareness of client-side developer concerns among other TAG members
and the W3C technical leadership overall, and among the community of people
who've already been following the work of the TAG. It's made more people
realize that the design of client-side APIs for Web apps is a really
important part of Web architecture.

So let's look forward to the current TAG election helping to keep that
momentum going.
