Maybe that's reasonable for an author and journalist, but I find one
or two plenty.

I've never heard anyone express that view.  You seem to want to
attribute it to people, but I don't think they actually hold it.  I
must admit, however, that I have formed a similar impression that you
think anything sponsored by W3C is suspect.

I don't think taking obvious counter-examples and calling them "rare
exceptions" is very convincing.

I don't read either of those lists.  What happened when they moved to
the W3C?  What went wrong?  Did people stop posting to them?  Were
they harder to search or something?  Why would it make any difference?

I can't speak for anyone else, but I certainly don't share it... Maybe
it only exists in your imagination?
