For me, with no background, "economy" sounds more explicit than I/O for what I understand you are trying to get at. I/O to me implies computer system level actions.

I believe the answer is 'start a new group' would be far by easiest. I

systeam work that is unlikely to happen. Elf can ask System Team
directly by emailing sysreq@w3.org.
