That's the first time I've seen a legal construct applied to the DAO concept, and thanks for doing that.
Couple of points.
Why aren't there employees?
Maybe we need a new classification akin to a stakeholder- a cross between a user & a shareholder that produces & consumes value from the DAO?
Is there a need to also flush out a DAO accounting construct, which reflects the different nature of assets & value appreciation?
