I'd caution against setting up multiple rules for multiple events

So... historically it has been that if LA council members were not
already going, LA would cover if requested. This has been on two
grounds: 1) having board members at a General Meeting of the
organisation is a good idea and 2) as the main event of the
organisation, it is good to have board members visible and approachable
by the membership.

In reality though, this has seldom been taken advantage of.

As for LCA team, papers, ghosts, volunteers, zk hackers: it's been
largely left up to each LCA team... with ghosts providing some history
and different views on the matter.
