+1 to both of those, including the trimmed detail.

0 on that because recognition should be limited to an acknowledgement.
Something like pop-ups from every page would obviously be too far.

-1 to this.  The domain is too important to leave in the hands of
someone who could (although we hope will not!) be incapacitated.  I
feel it would be better to transfer to a community legal entity such
as SPI-Inc.org (for example) until the group prefers its own entity.

Hope that helps,
