Hi Eduardo,

 From the document you cite:

  "Following end of the XG, a new charter may be proposed with a  
incremental duration such that the total duration of the XG will not  
exceed two years."

This is not, strictly speaking, a new charter but an extension. Creating
a new charter to do the same thing would likely be an unnecessary
process burden.
