Well, I think we have the following situation here:
       * TDF has _still_ the aim to "facilitate the evolution of the
         (former) community"

of course. However, given the recent developments, I'd be careful with the wording now, but from the history, it is correct.

       * TDF has to consider the interests of the new community members
         (new to LibreOffice, having not participated within the OOo


       * TDF has - in the long-run - to enable the community by
         contentiously maintaining the "open, independent, and
         meritocratic organization"


In my personal point-of-view, this slightly revised text may be used
until we have the final foundation set-up:

         The Document Foundation has the mission of facilitating the
         evolution of the LibreOffice Community into a new, open,
         independent, and meritocratic organization over the next few
         months. An independent foundation is a better reflection of the
         values of our contributors, users and supporters, and will
         enable a more effective, efficient and transparent community.
         TDF will protect past investments by building on the
         achievements of the first decade with, will
         encourage wide participation within the community, and will
         co-ordinate activity across the community.

At least, all important points are kept (especially the "achievements of
the first decade" - which is related to OOo but LibO).

Sounds good to me! What do others think?
