I had a friend who was burnt by the specific thing that this would be
trying to ban: the group had little serving gear, and at the instigation
of a charming seneschal, decided that cooking and serving gear could ONLY

In other words, though the group *had* money, the event *made* money and
the seneschal/event steward looked good-- they had fixed it so the cook
either had to buy the feast service stuff out of his own pocket or scant
the actual feast FOOD from the feast budget to make up for the cost of the
serving gear.

The list of irresponsible mofos making financial policy or allowing others
to make financial policy about what cooks can and cannot do in order to
benefit themselves or make themselves gets longer and longer. *sigh*
