Of course not - obviously, this group should be as open as possible,
especially given that many relevant people doing this kind of work are
not W3C members. At the same time, assessing how many W3C members want
to participate in 1 or 2 groups is useful, as charters have to be
verified by at least 4 W3C members. I think the 1 XG model has at least
4 members, I'm not sure yet about two XGs. But maybe!
