I personally think this is an excellent idea.  DIB is very useful
outside the context of TripleO, and is being used increasingly by many
other OpenStack projects.  Moving DIB into a new group I think would
be a benefit as allows potential contributors to consider it in a more
focused context rather than thinking about it as a triple-o component.
Ultimately I think the core groups here (OoO/DIB) would have some
overlap but would not be the same set, and it seems that change is
inevitable - why not create the new group now?
