I would have to agree with John on this one. When we first founded the RALO, we put in a lot of wording (that has now been cut) because we were trying to come up with every scenario that we could think of that *might* happen. As it is, things have run very smoothly and most of it was unnecessary. I don't mean to have a Pollyanna attitude about this but I would say "Don't sweat it until we see it happening".
As for this particular case, I agree that more digging needs to happen to see where the majority of the group is from. However, since this seems to be more of a loose affiliation of groups, that may be more difficult than it sounds. I am wondering (and ONLY wondering) that since we have rules in place that say that they can only reside in ONE RALO, that we should take them in as it seems that they are based in the US. I mean, really, what if their members are so strewn around the world that they don't have a majority ANYWHERE? Then what are they to do? Someone needs to provide them with a home.
(And yes, I also take in stray cats...)

Unless we see individual Catholic parishes or LDS congregations signing up (presumably to exert undue influence over .CATHOLIC and .LDS), I wouldn't worry about it.
