What are you trying to get at? That 6000 members is somehow preferable to 380? 
There's certainly no cap on W3C membership, they're actively recruiting. 

But if you think that with 6000 member organizations at a lower membership
fee that you'll somehow get better results (with the same budget for
staffing and management), I think you'd be disappointed. 

Again, I've managed our membership to the W3C starting on the most
shoe-string of budgets, so "it's too expensive" really rings hollow here.
You either commit to it, or you don't.
