Thus far I understood it that any person can be a teacher if he wants
to. He takes or compiles a course to teach for money or for free,
organizes his own audience/clientèle/study group/etc. and does teaching
using all teaching tools in his possession within UU (not many of them
as of today)

I agree. We have to decide on set of things accessible for free and
those ones - for payment as a matter of business. What it has to do with
'signing on' I cannot remember too.
