More money for the Association is fine

But what that hypothetical licence cover? Just the same code as the GPL 
version with the only "benefit" that it can be used in a closed-source 
environment? I guess I'm fine with such a scenario, but I don't like 
"open source" business models where the free version is some basic stuff 
while the real deal has to be paid for. Granted, that's usually the case 
when the code is not community driven.

Not quite and I think you can already donate money, can't you?
