As a non-profit we (GNOME) would not have voting privileges.
The membership will serve as a mechanism to allow interested
foundation members to join ECMA committees.  I'm advocating this in
relation to ECMA376/TC45 aka MS OfficeOpen XML.  Committee members
have the ability to request clarifications and suggest improvements
in the text of the specification.  For anyone implementing parts of
this format this is a golden chance to get enough documentation to
facilitate interoperability.
