The Church had not been founded, and any one could have followed Christ. If someone were casting out devil's in Jesus's name, it could be a case of someone praying in the name of Jesus and using His name. It isn't someone preaching contrary to Him in His name like it is today.

Other "denominations" didn't exist yet and the concept would have been very foreign. 

Just to play devil's advocate...

This man still could have been active after Jesus' death and resurrection yet not part of the "church".  Would he suddenly be considered schismatic? heretic?  Additionally, Jesus did not say let him be until after my hour has come or any kind of thing implying some kind of limitation on the directive.  Maybe it only applies to the orthodox churches???  Those initially writing down the text of the bibles thought it important enough to include, so I would assume that it was understood to be a long term directive and not a passing quip.
