I agree with your point below but I do feel it is helpful to state
what ISOC's intended implementation is: a Cost Center within ISOC.
This should not override the section (principle) you quote below.
Perhaps we can add language at the beginning of this section to
clarify all this (or move the paragraph you quote from section 7 to
this section). We might also add some of the other language proposed
(see immed. below) so that the overall intent is clear rather than
focusing on the less important detail.
"...periodic summary of the IASA accounts in the form of standard
financial statements that reflect the income, expenses, assets, and
liabilities of that cost center."

There is a section of the BCP that says:
Within the constraints outlined above, all other details of how to
structure this activity within ISOC (whether as a cost center, a
department, or a formal subsidiary) shall be determined by ISOC in
consultation with the IAOC.
It seems inconsistent with this section to mandate elsewhere that
the IASA will be organized as a cost center, that we will use "cost
center accounting", that the financial reports will include a P&L
for the cost center, that we will publish the general ledger
accounts, etc. These are details that, IMO, the IAOC and ISOC
should work out (and change as needed to meet the needs of IASA and
the IETF community) between themselves.
