Thanks... this is something I haven't considered, I don't really have any experience with the PRS. My original intention was to source entirely from public domain sources, but this raises an interesting issue.
As a general thing... I'm probably going to let this topic run for another few days maybe, and see about any other responses. Then, if everything is reasonably positive, I'll start to try and get people to volunteer to help with this project.

I notice you're in the UK too ...
I don't know how it works, but a lot of the stuff I'm doing may be licensable but not public domain. Especially stuff that's licenced with the Performing Rights Society, we may be able to typeset it ourselves, then sell (probably printed only :-( parts of stuff that's still in copyright. Only snag is, we'd need to keep good books in order to make returns to the PRS.
I need to repeat (ianal) but I *think* we can do this, we need to check up on the legalities before we try it for real...

Okay... this may seem like a strange place for this, but it's seem the best place to put it in order to get attention/opinions.
What I'm proposing is some kind of a collaboration between Lilypond users to submit their scores to an online score (the scores being engraved from public domain sources, etc.). The money that is made from the sale of scores (either pdf/ly/both files) could then be distributed in 3 ways:
1) The upkeep of running the store
2) The creator of the score
3) The community
Number 3: A chunk of the money would go into a piggy bank of sorts, which would be used to, upon application, help fund sponsorship of Lilypond features.
That's me out... now let the shooting down commence (hopefully not).
