To explain: "3 or more members" because that's how many you need to move
a ballot, i.e. to take an action in the CAB Forum. If shutting the WG
down doesn't even have that level of support, it is right that the
default be that it should continue. If shutting it down does have that
(low) level of support, then the default becomes that it should end, and
those who wish it to continue would need to pass a rechartering ballot.

This provision avoids the need to pass N extra rechartering ballots per
year, while still meeting the Bylaw requirement for a date-based end to
be in the charter.
