I think the idea was that the indemnification _should_ cover such
claims, so that at the time of the asset transfer the Trust doesn't
end up with a bunch of potential liabilities that it didn't undertake.
(We don't exactly know the nature of these actions yet, which is part
of what's making trustees nervous.)

I'll suggest this to the trust.  It's something to consider.
