I believe that is the case for all participation in the W3C.
Unfortunately, I was not able to join a WG as a private "invited
expert" and a different one as a Google representative (in my role as
a Google contractor). I think that is a problem at the W3C that they
don't allow you to have multiple different forms of representation per
person. I even tried with different email addresses and that wasn't
allowed either.
