Agreed, but that's in line with what I (am trying to, at least!) propose
above.  See more below.

What I'm proposing is that this association can be either indirectly,
through an association with a WG, which would give the area of the WG;
or directly set to an area (which is independent of the area of any 
sponsoring AD).

The alternative is to not associate them with a group at all, until they
have been accepted by a WG, or a sponsoring AD.  I think that for the
purpose of code uniformity it's easier to associate them with a group
'Individual Contributions' (or whatever) than to code the equivalent of

  if doc.group == None:
     print "Individual"
  else:
     print doc.group

everywhere we need to show something for such a document.


Best regards,
