Ideally the roadmap leads us back to industry leading status and has to be put together by the visionaries amongst us. The Working Group lets companies participate without having to put up their own developers, and of course they deserve influence on the vision and roadmap as do all contributors to it's realization. But I'd bet a lot of them would be happy if they were presented a great list. Mind you that being said, vision by committee can get out of hand quickly as that committee grows and diversifies, so we have to be careful there too.
