It can happen a variety of ways. The WG chair or another participant may
know of someone's expertise on a particular topic, and suggest that the
individual be contacted and invited. 

Someone may demonstrate appropriate expertise on a lists such as these, and
be invited. 

Someone may directly contact a participate and ask to be invited -- though
such a direct route should of course be accompanied by supporting evidence
of expertise and an acknowledgement of availability to participate fully
(calls, email, face to face meetings). I don't think chairs want to be
inundated :), but of course it's possible that group members and chairs
won't always be aware of someone with skills that would compliment the group.
