The problem, IMHO, is that the scope of this CG is also too broad - and I think that meant that despite all good intentions, almost no work items were produced here. 

To address your concern, there is almost no overhead to starting a new CG for a particular item that may spin off the WG. A smaller, more focused CG may work more effectively than this one.
