If a literal, formal organization was created, say The Satoshi Bitcoin Client Corp, with some specific person or group of people that had ultimate control over the organization, and this organization was the official owner of the address, I could possibly see it. As it stands now, it appears as if the community is trying to create some sort of "public property" donation address, and I just don't like how that's going to wind up working out.
Not a bad idea.

Here's another thought-- on the about page (or somewhere else) have a blurb about donating to the developers, then list a Bitcoin address for each developer.  Let the end user decide what the send to whom.  It might not be the fairest, but it would take care of the problems that have been mentioned.

Is Bitcoin an organization that can be donated to?
no, but you can still donate to the developers, code does not write it self.

Do we want new users of bitcoin to think there is a central authority?
no, why should they do that? code does not write it self.
