I understand your concern but I don’t think there’s too much danger of 

I see this API WG effort as being more complementary to the EU WG than 
overlapping it. The API WG is focused on defining/implementing the API whereas 
EU WG is focused on creating application that consume the API. The place where 
they meet (and somewhat overlap) in the middle is the API.

The impetus for the API WG group needs to come from within the OpenStack 
developer community. They need to be in charge of it. They should absolutely 
seek feedback from the EU WG but trying to mix the two together wouldn’t be the 
best path forward, IMHO. 

I think you’ve got it right by suggesting that specs process would be the best 
channel for feedback between these WGs.
