Is it the job of the standards definition body to bail out an organization which made a bad decision in terms of IP ownership? Will it continue to be if they continue to do so? What about if the political hole they are digging themselves becomes fundamentally incompatible with the business requirements of others?
I don't think you can expect the W3C to say "if you want to implement HTML5, you better have $5 million per year in disposable income". I think the point is to offer wide implementation of web standardsin entities big and small.
