Dave,
Again, you are considering ideas in a very literal and narrow scope.  If the ARRL collects donations, it can then use those funds to fulfill or offset a fixed budget for competent software developers.

+ AA6YQ comments below

I doubt there will be a need for increased Dues to support LOTW
Fact is there are many of us that will ear mark donations and or pay for some 
ARRL LOTW Prime member benefits, if they ever get that ball rolling.

I have provided direct feedback on these points to Headquarters staff
but as I have said more than a few times
the league is a big boat and it does not turn on a time,
however I am hopeful we will see something within a couple of years, maybe.

+ No competent software developer will join an organization in which their compensation is dependent on donations.
