Total French stupidity ?

Boarf INRIA drops W3C. Officially, that's for an expansion, of course. Officiously, I wonder if INRIA is not recentering on its core activities, dropping what they have always called "The W3C Project". W3C has always been an alien among normal INRIA activities, and W3C staff have always been aliens among normal INRIA people.

And of course, I guess that there is a budget problem too.

Can you believe the communiqué does not mention that INRIA will remain a W3C bureau in France ? OOOPS, by the way, does it remain a W3C bureau in France ?
