What are your current thoughts about the best answer, bearing in mind what you may have read in the Scrum Guide?

The Development Team is responsible for creation of DoD.

I believe its the collaborate effort of the Scrum team. However, in the Scrum guide, it mentions - "If the Definition of done for an increment is part of the convention or guidelinenes , all Scrum teams must follow it. If done for an increment is not a convention of the development organization, the Development team must define a definition of done"

Trying to really understand what that sentence exactly means.
And the answer to the questions: -

1) Who creates the DoD?
2) Who is responsible for Dod?

Are 1 & 2 the same?

Scrum Teams can be part of large organizations which have a stake in the quality of the products being developed. An agile team isn't necessarily garage startups, and they can have a duty to parent organuzations in terms of quality, risk control and observing strategic direction.

Hence the first place to go for a Definition of Done ought to be the organization itself. It may have standards that need to be observed with regard to branding, legislation, contractual conditions or any number of other factors. A team may augment that standard with their own criteria.

Sorry, but I don't agree:
' If "done" for an increment is not a convention of the development organization, the Development Team of the Scrum Team must define a definition of “done” appropriate for the product.'
