Gregory thank you for your response, I just want to point out a small
issue before it gets spread too far:

The basic AoA proposal already allows corporate membership, the
amendment is only on if such members have voting rights or not. Now it
can and has been argued that such a membership without a vote doesn't
make sense, but the board came to the conclusion that this is a decision
best kept separate from the actual decision on the articles. Having a
thrid variant would have just been too complicated to do reasonably in
teh time available.
