Note -- this is a different question that has come to FESCo as well:

The answer there is that there will probably always be a degree of oversight
from FESCo over the Working Groups.  In the short term, this oversight will
be much more intrusive and "get in the way" of what the working groups want
to do.  As time goes on and decisions about what FESCo would like the
working groups to do independently of FESCo become more apparent there will
be less of these cases because FESCo and the Working Groups will have
sufficient cases to be more sure of the decision making boundaries.
