Well if that's the case, then it would lead me to think that it's more of a
TLP more than anything else per best practices.

I don't agree -- you're looking to bring together two communities that are
"fairly separate" as you put it. The separation likely didn't spring up over
night and has been this way for a while (as least to my knowledge). This is
exactly the type of situation that typically leads to TLP creation from what
I've seen.

Cheers,
Chris
