I know what you are talking about [even though I'm in Canada :-]. IMHO,
the best thing to do is to have some sort of an "office" in Europe. Maybe
in Germany. They would receive all donations from around the world and
the current system could remain for people in Canada/US.

IMO, Debian should not need to be cetralized as the organization is
rather global.
