Yes it may be unwieldy, but I was really trying to protect the TDA from a different fate - that of being labelled as "Data and Documentation", as the EC seems to want. I accept that if 'm the only minority voice then I will go along with what the rest want, but I would seriously recommend discussing with at least the President of Div G (Ignai Ribas, Spain) the possibility of a new WG being hosted by his Division instead (or as well). All of the topics now represented by Commissions of Div G were forefront topics at the TDA Symposium in 2011. I just believe it will be harder to "grow out of" a label that a TDA WG is only about data, than it will be to *include* that label from a more solid position within astrophysics. It would be equally difficult to emerge from a cradle within Astroinformatics and into astrophysics, without having earned the label of being only about data and computing.
> It seems a bit unwieldy to me to create so many WGs, but that¹s really up to you all.
