We study the (2,2) representation of SU(3) and show that in this case non-maximal and disconnected stability subgroups exist. From this particular example we extract a general rule for obtaining non-maximal stability groups. The resulting principle is applied to SO(16) Grand Unified Theory. We build a model with four left-handed and four right-handed families and with W_4 (Weyl Group of SU(4)) as the discrete horizontal symmetry group.
