I don't know that a "subgroup" would be very useful here, nor of any
precedence in other IGs for them.  What did you have in mind?

IMO, IGs work best when interests are common, and subgroups may work
against that.  At least that's my initial impression to the idea.

Me, I'm mostly interested in applying software architecture principles
to the study of various architectural styles that are, or claim to be,
suitable for large scale deployment.  As you probably know, I believe
there are major architectural flaws with Web services that will prevent
them from seeing much use on the wide-open Internet.

If "Reasoned bashing of Web services" is a subgroup, sign me up! 8-)

Right.

Sounds good.
