RE: participating communities (was XML Blueberry)

Yes.  They become owners of proprietary solutions 
just as XML code owners have proprietary solutions 
and are not second class citizens.

They still have a single target.  So do others. 
It isn't the same proprietary product.

The W3C isn't the single arbiter of all things markup. 
Just all things XML.

privately extended documents, so the people who need
these private extensions will be second-class citizens.

The same as the downside of any other proprietary document
format.  But you knew that.
