Until the new Bylaws are voted, the existing one applies and allows the
migration of LWGs to subcommittees. However, as we discussed on the last

We do cleanups from time-to-time. The last one I remember was the SHA-1
deprecation effective dates in the main text. We keep this information
only in section 1.2.2.

Sure, editorial changes can be drafted later.
