I am not a tax expert, an accountant, or a lawyer, but if the
regulation exists, I expect it would be designed _precisely_ to
prevent this sort of activity. If I were the IRS, I would not want
my potential audit costs of non-profits to extend into audits of
_other_ non-profits to whom the first non-profit was forwarding
money. Indeed, that seems like the sort of shell game that would be
a boon to tax evaders and money launderers and such.
