When I mentioned incorporating, I was referring to the Articles of Incorporation, sorry that was vague. 

According to their customer agreement I do not see anything related to DNS hosting. I also think that it would make for an interesting story how Amazon would throttle or terminate an instance providing DNS for alternative TLDs.

Keep in mind a T2 runs anywhere from 5GB-20GB of data a month.  You
need to check Amazon's TOS to make sure they don't try to throttle you
or prohibit DNS.

Alex and I are working on this.  We will probaby incorporate in TX,
only because (1) we both live here and (2) we're familiar with

501(c)(3) formation is separate from incorporating, and is rather
expensive.  We will probably start by creating a non-profit OpenNIC
"foundation" of some sort, and move from there.
