My proposal is that, like updates to e.g. the Network Security document
or the Bylaws (until recently) or any other document without its own WG,
they would be handled in the regular meeting on the regular list. If at
some point the volume became too great, we could properly charter a WG
to bear the load.

The Bylaws say "The Forum shall not be required to submit any matter to
a Working Group, but may itself draft requirements and guidelines
without a Working Group in its discretion." That's what I'm proposing we
do, but if people think the volume is great enough, we can charter a new
properly-scoped WG, no problem.
