Aren't there places were interoperable APIs are most needed? What about
parsers? This is still a major interoperability issue for web developers
even with recent versions of browsers, maybe not for the DOM, but we
have no way to control for instance client side transformations in a
browser.

I don't want to discuss if it should be done by the W3C or not, but
there still are contexts in which interoperable and standardized APIs
are badly needed!
