There would certainly be value in moving ahead; people are asking where 
and how they can make changes and while the split is in the air there 
isn't really a good answer to that question. No split has to be forever, 
documents can merge or split further later in their lifetimes.

Some questions to consider, however:

Assuming the split is fine, should we start publishing split parts now 
or is it better to wait for the group's reorganisation?

Should the first batch of documents be published as one big set? It has 
big advantages when it comes to linking; but it's a solid chunk of work.

I'm assuming we'd put all documents under Process 2014 and auto-publication?

The split documents are currently all listed as being without editors. 
Would it be acceptable to take the current list of editors as "Former 
Editors"? Any takers for specific documents?
