First, unless someone objects, I'll commit this patch to the document. 
These two erroneous words ("three" and "available") should have been 
deleted earlier.

Second, to Eric's point:

When we get platinum level sponsors, putting logos on the homepage seems 
quite appropriate to me.  A sponsor at that level could reasonably ask for 
lots of other recognition, and we'd probably hunt for ways to say thanks.

Third, I'm +1 on this document and would like to see hear some facts and 
spirited debate about pros and cons of different banking options.  Then, 
we can get to the real work of seeking sponsors.
