Well thats another perfectly good option that won't force PG-EU to
operate as a user group within France. We would just say that every
member of a organisation that is itself a member of PG-EU is entitled
to vote in PG-EU matters.

That's *not* what I was suggesting. I was suggesting that a member
organisations fee's are based on the number of members it has, and
that it gets a single vote for each member. The only difference to 1
member == 1 vote would be that the board of the member organisation
decide how the members votes be cast - similar to the way our
governments vote on our behalf in EU matters (but without the
convoluted way of calculating how many votes each country gets).
