Since this is an experiment I'm fine with the current situation (the admins
are also not planning on actively policing users over any of that either),
but if someone feels strongly about this and wants to start a dialogue with
the PSF board right now they can. And if it does become a problem and we
want to keep using Zulip we can then stand up our own instance without
those restrictions (assuming we even can; IANAL so I don't know how many of
those requirements are required for any and all services hosted in the US
or by a US organization).
