Are you sure this is a correct assumption?  Participation in IEPG is as far
as I know open.

(I take that you by "such a group" mean the EEPG.)

I don't think your assumption is wrong (although others seem to have a
different opinion).  The way I read the current proposed terms of reference
the focus is on infrastructure and operational coordination of infra-
structure and mandatory support functions and protocols to run that infra-
structure.  In support of this view, I quote from the proposed terms of
reference:

I would guess that in the latter point the emphasis is also on basic
network infrastructure, as we currently know it in the IP world (lines,
network layer infrastructure, routing, addressing, possibly DNS etc.)
