Incidentally, when we increased the membership of the AB last year (
https://github.com/w3c/w3process/issues/190), we discussed increasing the
TAG as well.  I followed up with several TAG members and got the same
response - they were not convinced that the TAG would be able to increase
its workload by adding members, and it would complexify logistics.  I will
continue to support their take on that, whatever it is.  :)
