Although our Guidelines apply to all WGs, I suggest we target a 
subset.  Perhaps a good place to start is to target those WGs that we:
1. use their specifications as examples
2. already have a relationship there.

Once we identify these WGs, then we determine if we want to exclude any of 
them.  Then, we see if there are additional WGs we want to add.
