Thanks Eve,

Let me jump in and clarify.
By 'support' I mean that I want to make sure that the LC knows what the
idea is, and that the LC supports it (or not).

Forming a WG is a LC responsibility - slam dunk - so y'all need to know
what plans are being hatched, think about how it plays into plans for your
own WG or DG, and have the opportunity to comment.
