I disagree with 1. There are (and will be more once the Guidance is here) cross-references between our documents. And they will nicely  complement each other, in the end.

I also disagree with 2. See for example:
https://www.w3.org/TR/prov-o/
https://www.w3.org/TR/2013/REC-sparql11-query-20130321/
And even the W3C spec which don't have a 'family' section formalized spend some time in the intro for citing other documents of that are related, explaining that the different roles are. Cf the OWL specs.

For 3 you are right, but we still can say that it belongs to a family. It's actually easier to present a family in a specific document where editors present their related work in different spaces, rather than on a W3C group page where it may be more awkward to list documents from other spaces.

Finally there's one big motivation. We have the section now, and it's very decent, so it will be much less work to adapt it answer specific comments you have (such as making sure the IETF document is not mistaken as an output from the WG) rather than to spend time for making up and discussing entire new paragraphs.
