Nothing against but there is an important point missed...

* Instead of a organization...

Someone has stated here that to sign a chapters agreement, for
example, it's important to have a legal entity or, at least, an
organization. I think that it could be different also to discuss with
someone because without an organization it's impossible also to found
a point of contact (for example there is no legal representatives).

IMHO the case of Brazil can be a *type* of chapter (for example a
first step) and not a different type of organization (considering that
there is no organization as I can see).
