No, the DNSO is the constituencies.  At least as it is setup right
now.  The NC's action to block participation by individuals who are
not members of constituencies is clear proof that this is the way it
is in practice.

This means that the Workgroups are the Workgroups of the
NC/Constituencies, not of the GA.

Lets call it what it is.
