The problem is the new "global registry" for .org -- if it's established
according to the Usual ICANN Process, it will be as non-responsive to
the needs of small sites as possible.  And it will be perfectly free
to define "non-profit" as "anything registered as a non-profit with the
IRS or local equivalent."
