"Charity" is not country-specific. At the very least, Japan
(according to JACO) and Canada (CharityVillage) also have
charities with similar conditions of openness to the UK.
DUS is not registered as a charity, so just like organisations
in a country with no "charity" concept, it could use one of
the other ways I mentioned.

Same rules should apply to all. Agreed?
