Good idea and I like to add my +1 on this as well. A few minor comments:

1. From your mail, the use of the word "group" is a little bit confusing. I
hope you are referring to group of topics and then the group to approve is
the CCWG. I will be surprised if you have already grouped the topics and
members as I think group membership call should happen after approval of
the "topic grouping working method" by the CCWG.

2. I suggest that the groups be as few as possible. However the topics can
be more and each group could take 2 related topics, for continuity and

3. I expect that the groups principle will be bent on openness and
transparency. i.e meetings will be open for observers to join in,
schedules/transcripts will be posted and shared to the larger group (at
least to those who opt to receive)

4. I suggest that the group monthly reporting requirement to the CCWG be as
flexible as possible and be staggered in a manner that ensures the CCWG
receives at least 1 but at most 2 reports weekly from one of the groups.
That way, there would be ample time to read through and provide
comments/suggestions to the group's work. Having all the reports come in at
the end of the month could mean some reports may not be read by some CCWG

Finally, I like to reiterate my commandment of the reasoning behind this
working method. Unfortunately I won't be joining the CCWG meeting today (or
may be late), but I wish you a fruitful deliberation. On a very light note,
as the deliberations happen please remember that a chartering organisation
already approved the work of WS1, so we should be talking about its
implementation as much as possible and not modifications ;-).
