How Many Sub-Goals for which Task?

Perhaps the simplest answer to this question is: With a given task, first make a try without any sub-goal. If this does not work, try one sub-goal, then two, etc.

An extension of the trial-and-error approach would be to train a fourth network to map start/goal combinations to numbers of sub-goals. The training signals could be obtained by the trial-and-error-method: For a given problem, the desired output of the fourth network should be a representation of the minimal number of necessary sub-goals.
