Approved Resolution 6.1 (TSC 11/07/2019):
No. Existing projects already have governance mechanisms in place to handle multiple components within the project. There is no need for the TSC to get into that micromanagement of the projects and its components. Projects may decide to manage component development as subprojects but no formal definition of subproject is intended by the TSC.
When a project sends to the TSC its quarterly report, it needs to include anything relevant from all related efforts.
From a decision process perspective, it is expected that all maintainers have a maintainer vote and maintainers need to work out between themselves who maintains which pieces and how they resolve conflict. Projects should document how decisions are made and by whom.
Of course, if any conflict were to rise between maintainers within a project that can not be resolved by the project's own governance, the issue can be brought up to the TSC for arbitration.

Abandoned Draft Related Resolution 6.3:
Projects that are dependent of one of the other projects should be folded under that project. This means Composer becomes Fabric Composer, Explorer becomes Fabric Explorer etc.
Abandoned Draft Related Resolution 6.4:
Subproject status and reporting should be reported through the top level project. For example, Fabric Explorer status would be included in the Fabric quarterly reports..
