I agree that this is a serious problem and reflects poorly on the
level of support to the web development community that the W3C should
be providing if they want to be taken seriously.  There _are_ serious
problems with the W3C continuing to act like "ivory tower elitists"
and ignoring concerns of usability, practicality, and customer

I suspect these will never get addressed.
