I don't think "irrevocably assigned to the IETF" works
well for money.
I actually also have kept that sentence in the principles,
namely at principle 5. It does not read so bad.
This is what it sais in my working copy:
my co-editor Rob did not think the reading was really good either,
so when we checked again, we took the sentence out.
SO in revision 02 that we posted later last night (early this morning)
it is gone. If you want it back, pls re-raise/open the issue.
I do want it back. Of course the exact words don't matter, but I
think that Principle 5 in Section 2.2 needs to be explicit that
the funds belong to the IETF whatever happens. For example:
All such funds and donations shall belong irrevocably
to the IETF.
I can't personally see a better word than "irrevocably," but it
is really a lawyer/accountant question how to phrase it.
There shall be a detailed public
separately identify all funds
available to and
all expenditures relating to the IETF and to
the IASA, including any donations,
of funds or
in-kind, received by ISOC for IETF-related
activities. In-kind donations shall only be
accepted at the direction of the
IAD and IAOC.
All such funds and donations shall
assigned to the IETF.
Having it in the principles is the best solution.
In all other cases, money going to support the IETF is called
"credited to the IASA account".
In section 5, section 5.2 and 5.3 talk about money credited
to the IASA
account. I'd rather add a section before section 5.5 that
5.x IASA expenses
The IASA exists to support the IETF. Therefore, only
expenses related to
supporting the IETF can be debited to the IASA account.
I like it, so I have added it to my working copy of the document.
That should make it clear enough that the transfer of money
into the IASA account is intended to be irrevocable.
