Of course, your argument makes perfect sense. But being an association 
that promotes Wikipedia and other Wiki-based projects, I would like to 
think that we can do without the permanent protections, only with a 
banner saying "This is a resolution voted by the board, and should not 
be modified anymore". This allows us to send outside a message such as: 
"look, we really believe in this wiki thing, all our stuff is managed by 
a Wiki, anyone can edit it, and it works. Of course, we are watching the 
pages, and if you do something silly, we'll reverse your edits, block 
you and/or protect the page".

Well... not much really. My discussion page is not protected; if it 
happens, I reverse the change and warn the person on its talk page. What 
do you do ?

My questions arises from the fact that I started to look at the bylaws 
in order to translate them in French, and §1.2 says that the seat of the 
association (note that a Foundation is something very different from the 
legal point of view) is where the President live, so I was wondering how 
it fits with this resolution that says Zürich ?
