Role of Liaison

The Staff Contact for a Working Group, with the Chair's assistance, appoints a liaison as needed where two groups have strong dependencies; see the list of W3C liaisons. The Liaison's primary role is to facilitate resolution of the dependency between the two groups.

An overall question: is there always a "Group A" & "Group B," in other words a "home" group that is having its requirements considered in a "host" (or 'target'??) group, or is the liaisoning relationship sometimes completely mutual?
