Actually, if you read the P&P, you will find that the concepts cohosts
and cohosting are very flexible and can deal with the relationships you
envision without modification. The flexibility is in the agreement
between the cohosts defining who is responsible for what. All you need
to do is to speak of cohosts, not hosts.

I think we often overdo it with putting too much specificity in our P&Ps and wind up creating unnecessary confusion and conflicts for ourselves. A Host is a Host whether they provide full-financial, partial-financial, or non-financial (logistical-only) support and we should not have to invent new words for a concept that is well known !

> Given that the LMSC P&P very specifically defines the roll of a session "host" or "cohost", I suggest that it would be desirable to use a different word for the organizational entity with which the LMSC partners to put on a session outside of the North America if that entity is not is not a "host" or "cohost" as defined in the P&P. "Sponsor" is a possibility, but there is a potential ambiguity here between the "sponsor of a session" and the "sponsor of a standard". The the term "partner" comes to mind as a possibility. I don't recall that "partner" has any IEEE defined meaning. And there are other possibilities.
