Hmm, the last of these was more than four years ago.  And both of them resulted from the 
W3C's  "old" role as a place where vendors can come together to define interoperability 
profiles of  reasonably well-understood technologies.  That is clearly not what the Schema, 
Query, or Semantic  Web working groups are doing.  "Purely academic" is not a reasonable 
description for the W3C's focus these days, but neither is a desciption that does not reflect 
its newer aspirations to push the boundaries of Web/XML technology.
