i hate saying this in more than one post, but you've asked it a few 
times in different contexts, so i'm just trying to shore it all up...

please see my other post and let me know if the reasons i've 
provided there are inadequate... having done this before, it's good to 
plan for it (which i think we've done in 10 other posts), but it's better 
to do it after the NFP is in place (when the tax and financial issues 
are covered by the legal entity)...

are we ok on this?

well, since we can't form a legal NFP *without* legal counsel, the 
answer is a resounding yes...

however, let's plan as much as we can here (using our collective 
experience and brainpower), and minimize the legal costs by 
having clear direction for a lawyer...
