​I don't know about that.

I've been involved with some nonprofits that believe it imperative to, as
possible, maintain a reserve fund to deal with unintended or unanticipated
circumstances. The amount of this reserve may be capped by taxation
authorities who don't want it too high, but having a substantial fund to
guard against liability, especially in uncharted territory such as ICANN's,
is certainly prudent.
