I'd say if you're going to forfeit profits, go all the way and get the
IRS recognition paperwork filed for the USA's entity. If you want to
play devil's advocate, I think a better question might be to ask whether
the Drupal entity should be run for-profit. Developers are a large part
students right now, but at some point they're going to need regular
income that a for-profit unit could theoretically provide.

[switch out of devil's advocate mode] That's not to say Drupal couldn't
have tax-exempt, non-profit and for-profit entities.
