Ah I see. So I suppose, following your line of thought, that any and all of
the wikimedia staff (all organisations included) involved in any part of
the fundraising should attach some kind of disclaimer about how they
"benefit" from the work they're paid to do? Since, after all, they're
working to raise money that *will* pay their salary.

This might prove an interesting thing to implement.
