Yes, I understand that debian.ch (and similar organisation, as Debian UK
as you suggest) is a Debian sister (have an official status) AND give all
proceeds to Debian Project.
But, IMHO, for the specific purpose of the merchandise page (i.e. to inform
users of existence of Debian merchandise vendors) the more relevant information
is the one about the destination of the proceeds (as you have stated in a
previous mail user could be more happy to see that proceeds fully or partially
goes to Debian).

More important, there could be vendors who have not an official status but who
give all proceeds to Debian (and the "the vendor is a Debian organisation"
would be false and the categorization not exhaustive).

Last but not least, at that point we would be obliged to list every Debian
sisters (or to be correct Debian Trusted Organization): as the DPL (added in
CC) said to me yesterday on IRC this kind of list already exists
(http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/Auditor/Organizations) and Debian Auditors take
care of it. Adding it also in the merchandise page could turn out in
unwanted duplication of information.

BTW, I think that the Debian Trusted Organization list deserves a specific
place on the website as it's a very official page and important page.
