Well, my knowledge about such legal details is really very limited
(better to say, it does not exist at all), so let me ask this question
and I it's also an important point we need to think about:

It looks to me that creating this foundation is rather "easy" - once
we finished all the documents and we all (or most of us) agreed on them,
the foundation will be incorporated by some kind of "magic" (which some
people may also call a legal process).

So when we have the foundation created, how difficult is it to

a) change some things which are written in the bylaws
b) throw away all of the charter and rewrite it from scratch
c) get rid of the foundation and create a new one because
   neither a) nor b) worked
