(5.1) When is the earliest day a subsequent split can be considered ?

The earliest subsequent split of newsgroups in the rec.arts.movies.* 
hierarchy is Dec, 1995.

(5.2) In what newsgroups should the initiation of such proposals be 
     discussed ?

When there are demonstrated needs of additional newsgroups or 
further divisions in rec.arts.movies.*, interested individuals should
discuss/debate such activities in the affected subgroups within the 
rec.arts.movies.* and to rec.arts.movies.misc as well to 
generate discussions among readers.

Examples :

Splitting an existing subgroup :

If you are interested in further division of rec.arts.movies.people 
into rec.arts.movies.people.actors and rec.arts.movies.people.directors, 
you should post your threads to rec.arts.movies.misc and 
rec.arts.movies.people.

If you are interested in creation of forums for art films or 
independent films within the hierarchy, you should post your 
threads to rec.arts.movies.misc, rec.arts.movies.current-films and 
rec.arts.movies.past-films.

Creation of new subgroups :

If you are interested in creation of rec.arts.movies.marketplace, etc, 
you should post your thread to rec.arts.movies.misc only.

Once a feasible and acceptable proposal for further reorganization
has been worked out among readers, you should then proceed to 
take the official steps involved in the creation of Usenet newsgroups.
This will involve moving the discussion to news.groups. Please 
read (5.3) for further info.

(5.3) Where can I obtain more info on creation of Usenet newsgroups ?
