All in all, I like the idea but I'm not so sure it's easily doable.

I have a few issues to discuss: a Charter ready to be submitted to AC
review/vote should contain information about Co-chairs, duration and
more importantly Staff Contact. I don't see this happening without prior
contacts between the submitting organization and W3M so the former
would know if W3M is opposed to the submission of the Charter to
ACs or not...

Furthermore, the last sentence from your prose above does not seem
right to me: the Director is not here to offer team support and deal
with budget, the CEO is. The Director could veto the submission of such
a Charter to ACs.

What if the chartered activity could be handled by an existing Group?
What if the whole thing does make sense as a Member Submission (a spec)
but none as a W3C WG?
