It may be overspoken, but it is a real controversy.
There are parties who believe that the public focus
of the W3C on the Semantic Web takes resources away
from work on the more immediate requirements for
commercialization (eg, web services). The quote
from Tim Bray is unfortunate out of context, but the
story is real.
W3C mission: Research or standardization? The
dues paying members feel that they have a right
to decide. When Festa asked me, I told him
DARPA was a powerful player in this and actively
supports the Semantic Web, and that if nothing

W3C is to serve its membership, it must listen
and respond if these members make a case that
the Semantic Web is not where they want their
dollars to be spent.
