Yah.  The only way the formation of a group can work is if
- there's a genuine desire and consensus by the people concerned that
  it would be A Good Thing, and that they want to be in the group.
- there is no significant number of people feeling that it's a plot by
  a small subgroup to take control.
(C.f., the musical _1776_, and why Virginia proposed independence and
not Massachusetts.)

No one barony should be strongly pushing a principality, or #2 will
kick in.
