It depends on whether one is deceptive or not: If the money for the
proceeds goes directly to a person which happens to work at the LaTeX
project, then most would think that it is not in the support of the LaTeX
project specifically, as the person getting the money can do whatever she
pleases with it. Only if the money is specifically earmarked as belonging
in support of the LaTeX project would one expect it to be so. But a
deceptive person would surely label the former case as being the latter
