I don't want to hijack this into a discussion of W3C, but since you 
raise the parallel:

That used to be true, when the W3C operated under the W3C Document 
License (https://www.w3.org/Consortium/Legal/2015/doc-license). Even 
then, this was never interpreted as limiting the ability of the W3C's 
own groups and their participants to iterate on the specifications in 
public. Only actual forking was disallowed.

This is now (for W3C) mostly moot, as most (all?) Working Groups have 
switched to the W3C Software and Document License 
which does allow forking.


PS: resending, as I had sent this earlier from the wrong email address 
and got caught up in moderation.
