From http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Process-20010719/tr.html#Recs :

The W3C "Recommendation track" is the process that W3C follows to build
consensus around a Web technology, both within W3C and in the Web
community as a whole. W3C turns a technical report into a Recommendation
by following this process.


If I understand the jargon correctly the Advisory Committee is, de facto, the membership of the W3C.

So can the Advisory Committee vote down a Proposed Recommendation? It seems that, formally at least, that is the only time the whole membership of the W3C has a vote - although it doesn't seem to be actually spelled out in the Process document whether they have a vote or not.

Or is Advisory Committee "review" essentially a rubber stamping exercise?
