Another view:

1) require that a candidate recommendation be accompanied by a
conformance-determining test suite (hah!  eXtreme Specifying, anyone?)
2) since W3C wishes to remain a vendor forum, adopt the principles of
other vendor coalitions: no recommendation may *leave* candidate status
until two member organizations have produced conformant (see 1),
interoperable implementations.

No rough consensus; that's left to the working groups and W3C members.

I stopped by the bar at 3 a.m. to seek solace in a bottle, or possibly a
friend.  I woke up with a headache like my head against a board, twice as
cloudy as I'd been the night before.  I went in seeking clarity.
