Now, another important body, WHATWG, has joined the chorus calling on the W3C to prevent their technical work from become a legal weapon. WHATWG is a breakaway web standards body, backed by all the major browser vendors, and much of the W3C’s standardization process consists of snapshotting WHATWG’s documents and putting W3C’s stamp of approval on them.

The whole concept of RFCs seems so quaint now.
