If that happens then the owners/maintainers of zarb.org/plf will be in
trouble, too.

Also if it ever gets that bad, then the association could in future be
moved to a country with less restrictive laws, it doesn't have to be in
the same country as the founders.

All big corporations do that (move their HQ to the country with the best
laws/taxes) so why not a FOSS association?
