Ok, lets start working through Steven's list one item at a time,
starting a new email thread for each.
Once we have resolution (probably concluding with a vote) we can
finalise it in the foss4g handbook.

We have draft principles on Finances in the handbook here:
I suggest using this existing text as the basis for guidance. I
personally think it has the right principles in place.
In particular, it is recommending each conference aim to hand over a
fixed percentage of profits as surplus to OSGeo. 85% is suggested.
I prefer this advise over the suggestion that low income countries
retain more profit.
