I know I'm dependent...should we make it IRS official?

I live with friends because my health persists in being absolutely fascinating. They provide approximately 99.8% of my support. (I buy fruit once in a blue moon.) My income for 2016 was under $500, from direct sales, and I expect to have no state or federal tax liability. I know I don't have to file a return. Can my friend claim me as a dependent? Should he? Would it cause problems for either of us in the future? (YANACPA, etc.)
