One way to consider this: stream A, as the root of the its dependency tree,
had a weighted edge from stream 0 (this is equivalent to saying it was in a
group with some weight). When A closes, it's 5 dependents each now become
roots of their own subtrees, so each has a edge from stream 0. The question
posed is on stream closure, what should those weights be? If the weight of
the edge to A is distributed to the dependents in proportion to their
weights on A, no changing of weights is required and we maintain
equivalence with the draft-11 proposal.
