In essence, as a public trust, the ASF must operate in a way
that does not favor one vendor or partner or collaborator
"over" another. This is one reason why the ASF was, for example,
unable to continue within the JCP EC, since our involvement
in there provided more "benefit" to Oracle than to anyone

Would that preclude treating TDF as a collaborative peer? Being a non-profit itself FrODeV is 
presumably bound by the same limitation so collaborating with it would not violate that 
requirement for neutrality.

It would not prevent us from working with TDF at all in
the ways we've been discussing, no.
