Since my memory is like a sieve, what, again, was the reason Law and Harvey had their falling out? Was it Harvey's insistance that the Man take center stage and the event take on more structure? Or was it never publicly known?

I too would like to see the proof. As a private business (LLC) I know that they have no obligation to do so, but when you make those kinds of statements, maybe a public accounting, and disclusure of wages is proper.
It's a good way for them to appease people who fear they're getting rich off our ticket money without actually telling us much.

Again, fuck appeasement. If someone's whinging about profit (excess or otherwise) then let them show their displeasure by electing to not go to the event. It really is that simple.
Unless you are a fiscally encumbered shareholder of the Corporation known as BRC llc or one of the branch/subsidiary corporations (PM, BM, NP, etc.) It's not your business.
Also, if I were one of the origional founders and was getting nothing in return while I believed another founder was living the high life and setting themselves up as the sole beneficiary in some future payout I might think it's my business.
I'm not sure that comparing BM to Dinsney of KoA is very instructive.
Disney and KoA were explicitly created as profit-making ventures.
Cynically, I have called it "tricking" people into entertaining each other, and taking a fee. Suspense of disbelief. Good times. One day everyone will stop and look around at each other and say, "Hey! We're out in the middle of the frickin' desert!" And that will be the end of Burning Man.
