James, I'd be very interested if you could find some reference for this
experiment. Some questions occur to me: Can the shares be sold during the
lifetime of the shareholder (i.e. the purchser would have a "life estate"
measured by the life of the original shareholder)?; what is the core business
of this corporation (is it essentially a metropolitan services enterprise)?

This may be somewhat similar to the use of tribal corporate business with
which many Native American groups are experimenting. I've often thought that
those enterprises should be watched closely as models for new forms of
governance and social organization.
