I can partially help, ie only from the perspective on the Interaction
domain only.

I spoke to the team contacts and one of the Chair of the WebApps Group.
They all indicated that they wouldn't be able to take on more work with
the current resources. So, my rough estimate is that the level of extra
resources necessary to take on this new work would be similar whether
it's within WebApps or in a separate group. If we do it in WebApps, it
would require the group to get more structured (through task forces).
