Or maybe they won't want to get stung again.

Oh, it's legal to pay salaries.  But supposedly, the IRs scrutinizes them
to see that they are 'reasonable' salaries, not disguized profits.  What
it comes down to, in this era of outrageously high salaries in top
management, is that the little guy with the small nonprofit corporation is
going to get hit by this, while the large nonprofit will get away with
paying its CEO a higher salary.  Even so, I'll bet the head of Channel 2
doesn't make what the CEO of CBS/Westinghouse makes.
