Sure, but that's kind of dependent on what information the company (as 
embodied by the directors and/or the members) decides should be treated 
as confidential.

As far as I can see the law does not, with possible exceptions for 
things like personal data, specify what is confidential so it would be 
up to the company to decide what is or is it not in that category.

Frederik is simply arguing that things should only be treated as such 
where strictly necessary, and not simply as a default position. In other 
words that things should be as open as possible.
