Subject: Re: [emergency] Successful Emergency Management IPR TransitionBallot

I may be wrong, but as I recall from an earlier briefing, "Limited 
Terms" allows the party with IPR encumbrance for their donations to 
"set" their terms, which means it opens the door to "lawyering" which 
is one of those proverbial "slippery slopes," while RAND has more 
specifically spelled out terms. However, had I had more time to 
attend the meeting when this was decided, I would have asked Jamie if 
the TC had the leeway to suggest (and set policy to enforce) the 
exact language of what "Limited Terms" could mean in relation to our 
TC, which might have given us the option of "closing" that 
"lawyering" door.
