This is not a job for a committee-of-the-whole ... I'd be
perfectly happy to let the IAB or IESG pick a religion and let
a working group define the rules of procedure. And, again,
piggybacking on the w3c religion seems like a really easy
way out of this never-ending debate.
As a point of information, although w3c do do a fine job, they
do change their Pubrules  now and then too, so that roughly
every time you get to the equivalent of the rfc-editor, some
subtle rule has changed and you have to figure stuff out. Not
a show-stopper, but w3c's approach isn't hassle free and
mightn't travel that well in some respects.
Having said that, I'd be for us experimenting with a parallel
ascii/w3c-html approach and we even have an excellent precedent
with xmldsig [2,3].
