At the risk of drawing flames ... arguably the EXI WG really should have been an XG. The (internal W3C discussion) pushback on that suggestion was that the research is done and now its time to standardize. We shall see of course.

Bah, it's been a while since mentioning EXI and consort ever drew flame here :)

The fact is, XBC was an XG in practice and would have been one in theory as well had the process for that been ready at the time (it was actually requested back then, but had that been the case XBC would be starting today). The request to do EXI as an XG was not really pushed back on the grounds of "research having been done" or not which is a bit too much of a subjective statement (at least in the way it was discussed -- "I think it's not been done" / "I think it has!" / "No!" / "Yes!" ;) but rather because XBC was EXI's XG.
