I think this is wrong (not the contents, but the responsibilities).

There is no real charter or manifesto of this group and there are
often topics brought up that are questionable on whether this group
should be able to decide on it. But I think the implied work is on
"how, not why/what" to package. E.g. methology vs policies.

It is FC and fesco and any higher boards that setup policies and some
of them are even holy grails like conflicts/replacements/overrides
between FC and FE. We can't solve such a dispute, we can only
implement the boards' decisions.

In short: You're god, and we're the apostels writing down your will,
but you must first make up your will within the divine trinity or any
other god model ;)
