David - 

	Thanks for elaborating - we can certainly do this if an organization wishes – and I’m happy to consider a standard option for such if you think there would be demand.  

	In trying understand the potential demand, do you anticipate that organizations would seek this option out of alltrustism, or are there other motivations potentially involved?
