That's a tough one. Getting AC reps from companies not actively involved in a WG or planning on implementing a particular technology to spend the appropriate amount of time to review and form an informed opinion on the matter is difficult. I suspect more than a few member companies only vote on what they have direct interest in, and don't even bother reading the rest.
