When I looked into it, there were a couple of years on
training wheels when you had to submit enough documentation
to show that you were following the rules for a 501(c)(3).
After probation, the requirements dropped significantly.

it's not just comprehension, it's comprehension of legalese.
Few can do this, if the number of people who have someone
else file their taxes is any indication (it's about 70%). I
don't do my own taxes anymore.
I expect if someone can setup the framework (eg a wiki) to
follow, then almost anyone can maintain it. So maybe the
problem is setting up the framework.
