Hmm, how is this going to be done?
These are fine I guess--seems a good idea to have representatives from these 
at IETF; IETF also includes librarians and persons who work in private 
companies that have to either tags languages (Wikipedia), or in software 
companies that create applications that create/process tags; so do not leave 
those out.

Of course, right now it is mostly haphazard and volunteer.

I see no problem also in having at-large members who create web content.
