I needed some time to read through the FAQ.  My basic
impression is, that it needs to be reordered, or at least,
grouped.  At about the half of the FAQ I had a slight
impression, why we should switch to this form of agreement.
Probably these questions and answers should be the first.

On the other hand I'm not 100% sure if this kind of
copyright works in most states of the European Union.  As
you might know, we don't have such a copyright, but it's
split into the author's right and the exploitation right.
The exploitation right is usually the author's right unless
you define another policy.  But the author's right is
sticked to you or your heirs for 70 years after your death.

But, while I'm thinking about it more thoroughly, a signer
of the joint copyright agreement still keeps his part of
author's right -- he just shares it with others and explains
that the exploration right must be the same like Gentoo

I'm not a lawyer, but that kind of agreement seems to work
for our different copyright structures.  So, good work!

Regards, Lars
