The question  is:  Do we think, the proposed criteria  are good for what we 
intend to do with this policy ?

If the answer is "no" and the solution is "be an organization", then let add

* "Must be an organization"

So, if a "individual" meet the initial  assignments criteria, he will need to  
become an organization to qualify.

I suspect that, we will need a definition of  "organization"  including size.

And are we not meeting folks against this policy  here ?


Let us  keep think simple  and move forward.
