The other point is that it's the wg chair that will decide if a
temporary sub-wg is appropriate (along with specifying the charter and
lifespan etc).

I think the key point is the the number of *top-level* wg's be kept
quite small.

How each of those wg chairs wants to run their own show is up to them,
within reason.
