That's also my understanding of our present de-facto policy.  I've been 
griping about this policy for a while, as I think members should need to 
pay extra to resell any aspect of our services that would usually be 
bought in a separate "hosting plan."  I plan to push for an official 
board vote on some new rule in the near future.
