I'm just reluctant to make it a WG without an immutable time-to-live,
less than a year. I want them to take on just one or two possible
changes at a time. A change which is so major that it takes longer
should be shepherded by the IESG (at this group's instigation?). It can
be recreated (not just rechartered) every time. We have a precedent,
the NomCom. I don't want the group to get stuck in its ways.
