And it is your interpretation to think that I was trying to propose a
financial strategy of any kind for the Wikimedia Foundation. On the
contrary to you, I do not try to impose my one and only solution as
"the best", i try to lay out the traps of adopting one solution too
rashly, without wieghing the pros and the cons.

And in case you have the feeling that I am against Google, please rest
assured that I am a believer in Google is Good and not Evil  (tm), and
it just happens to fall on them, but my arguments would have been
exactly the same if your proposed solution had been offered by the UN,
the Red Cross or the Deutsche Bank.
