I would have infinitely more faith in that process - and the process by 
which Candidate Rec is occasionally skipped - if there was a public report 
acknowledging which implementations were used as the basis for the 
decision.  (And no, I wouldn't count member-private implementations as 
enough to move a spec forward.)

Right now, there's no way to evaluate whether the W3C goes beyond the JCP 
or IETF on this.  My under-informed understanding is that it does not.
