I hadn't really thought that far ahead, by my two cents is that the
default is for SIGs to not persist and to basically have SIGs
re-declare themselves in the next release.  This would only be a mild
semantic difference -- given that creating a SIG is as easy as
copy-and-paste into a new wiki page, any SIG that wishes to do
long-term effort is welcome to do so.

My main reasoning for this is that SIGs are meant to bring together
people doing similar work, but that work will shift over time so the
SIG structure needs to respond to that.  For example, some SIGs will
likely be combined in fuerte, but in groovy there might be enough
divergent interest to un-condense those efforts.
