I understand your concern, but in reality, there are many ways to determine
a point of contact "without an organization". For instance, "instead of
legal representatives, (in Brazil we'd have) task assigned peers". They
could be the point of contact too.

you also said:

I agree with you. In Brazil we have the same mission as any other chapter.
Maybe it's a "first step" to become a chapter, but maybe it's a format for
the long-term to do the same as the any other chapters (promote Wikimedia
projects in a certain region). Shouldn't all types of chapters collaborate?
