I concur, especially since all it really says is "if we establish elsewhere 
we'll do it according to the relevant local laws." That's a given.

I agree Gentoo is far more likely to establish in another nation-state than a 
US state, since it's basically a global venture. Perhaps stating that as a 
possibility (or more simply that Gentoo is an international project) is a 
good idea, in the sense of establishing that it is part of the stated aims, 
so that any Board doing so would not be open to an accusation of acting ultra 
vires.
