Has there been any discussion about simply accepting Bitcoins but not exchanging them? Off-hand, I can't see any potential harm if the Wikimedia Foundation only accepts Bitcoin donations, though I imagine it could make tax reporting trickier. (That is, is it settled whether such a transfer would constitute income? Are Bitcoin donations considered tax deductible?) This issue probably has enough outside attention to warrant a blog post on the Wikimedia blog (<https://blog.wikimedia.org>).
