Hey, I've got a ponytail! And I even own a suit. :-)

But seriously, I would submit that the W3C has never known the roots of
the net. Its always been a "pay to play" organisation that declared that
IETF weren't the right folks to deal with the web.

The very idea that they don't want public input (but hey, they'll publish their
results when they are done!) shows this very clearly.
