just my comments:

The 85% are prposed for the template, which should be used every year 
from now on. So any LOC has to refund at least 85% of the outcome to 
OSGeo. The 90% are our specific offer to OSGeo, so that's specialized 
for the LOC 2016.
Maybe there are some local chapters, that are happy to have the 
opportunity to get some money from a very likely outcome of a FOSS4G.
For us, FOSSGIS e.V. (which is the legal entity behind LOC 2016) we do 
not need some % of the outcome, because we have our own conference and 
with that our own income.

I asked myself about the 30 days, but thought, okay, that seed-money 
must be on our account after conference. But the way you wrote it is 
fine also.

Just my notes,
regards, Till
