Sorry, it's undiplomatic to interfere with others

can't ignore how the future of Wikimania will look like if others will
follow UK plans to invest £40,000 only for the bid process (about 62,000$).
To be clear, that plan is still in draft, and that particular item has
received plenty of opposition.
I am in favour of spending money on bids - it is necessary if we want
to get professional quality bids. I am not in favour of spending that
kind of money on bids, though.
