Sure, I grok, but I would strongly suggest that these issues should be of
little to no importance to Linux Australia. :-)

If someone wants to start a consultants coalition or whatever [1], then to
Linux Australia, they ought to be on exactly the same playing field as any
other vendor. LA can be there to say "Sure, we have support and vendors here
in Australia, never fear", and that's a huge win in itself.
