2 separate comments after my lenghthy email with principles (but
please still read the other one, because I shorten here very much):
ad block: Okay, I'm also fine with a banner like used on enwp, saying
"this is offical policy" or "this is a official documents, please
don't change it except for typing mistakes". But in one or another way
we have to indicate, that these are not just neat little articles
where you're invited to changed whatever you want (particularly if
you're not on this mailinglist, cf. U. Wäfler...)

ad seat: It has a very basic decision, why I'm supporting Zurich here:
It's somewhere been discussed that I should be the person to which
post is forwarded (as Nando doesn't have the time etc.) and that's
also combined with my "application" for secretary job. Now, when I'm
gonna open this account, I'll do it most probably in Zurich. And until
now I thought, I can in Zurich only open an adress for 8000 Zurich and
not for Berne, Lucerne etc. And as the person who opens the adress has
to be physically present and as I don't want to travel to Lucerne,
Lugano, Berne or Rütli for this, I thought to do the whole thing at
Zurich. But I will doublecheck with the post, whether I could open a
"3000 berne" adress or whatever at Zurich's post. However, as Ilario
said, we had this discussion already once about the seat, I had in
mind, that consensus was reached for Zurich, but if you want we can
rediscuss this again... (By the way: There is nobody from Berne or
Lucerne here afaik. So it might get difficult if you have to go to the
exact place to open a such adress... But as said, I'll doublecheck
