Some would view SPI as a federation already -- that's implied by the
claims that Debian has no legal existance apart from SPI, and possibly
the relationship SPI has had with for the entirety of
the latter's existance.

As it stands, I think the situation is pretty ambiguous, and I'm not sure
that's actually harmful for the time being; but if the board want to go
further into issues like patent lobbying, liability protection, or just
supporting more projects, it's probably something that will need to be
clarified during the terms of the board members we're going to elect.
