If we need to deal with money, we have to be formal and legal. There
are a lot of commercial interests tied to the success of linux in India.
They have a legitimate (IMO) request in asking that LI be formalized 
and legalized.

If we continue to be an informal group, we risk the danger of a split
along the commercial vs informal guys.

BTW, I saw mostly positive and very few negative points for
the formation of a legal body in your list.
