Discussions between chapters I have absolutely no problem with and
whole heartedly encourage. It is WMUK (or any other chapter, for that
matter) negotiating, directly or indirectly, with the WMF (and if
we're involved in the committee, then the committee negotiating with
WMF is WMUK indirectly negotiating with WMF) before seeking legal
advice that I strongly advise against. Getting legal advice once the
negotiations are complete is too late.
