We only own "odftoolkit.org" now. There used to be about a dozen (eg.
domain squatting approach from the prior holders), and when they came up
for renewal, I pushed back. The PPMC requested us to hold odftoolkit.org as
the only one ever actually used. So, we dropped the others, saving $$ for
the Foundation.

The IPMC is the "owner" of this domain (with some dotted-line to Brand),
with Infra handling the mechanics. If the IPMC decides to retire
odftoolkit, and IPMC/Brand wants to release the domain to a new caretaker,
then a simple email (or Jira ticket) can make it happen. Easy stuff.
