I believe the PRC is a board committee, authorized to make decisions  
on behalf of the foundation regarding PR issues.

Lets cut to the root of it - Is your problem with having to work  
within the guidelines from the PRC, or is there some particular  
problem with the guidelines themselves?  I'm sure that if it's the  
latter, any reasonable suggestion, change or addition will be welcomed.

I'm assuming that they are grandfathered in, but I'm not really  
worried about it.
