This is pretty much what we've ended up with in the new FG areas:

One FG looking at core network (and interconnection) issues and another
one dealing with access network (and CPE) issues.

I really like Hisham's latest suggestion for the FG's. Provides enough
scope for each group to deal with their own unique issues without
spreading everything and everyone too thin.
