But that's only true in Ansteorra (and maybe a few other kingdoms),  
not SCA-wide.  Each Kingdom has the right to do what Ansteorra has  
done by having more stringent requirements for group status, or to  
require membership for different activities (which some do).  It is  
not feasible to expect "someone" at corporate to keep track of all  
the different kingdom rules and make sure they are all fully  
explained and laid out on the corporate membership page.  The  
prospective member has to take the responsibility to either read all  
the documents or ask questions if they don't understand.
