Copyright headers are not necessarily correct.  That's why one needs
the written assignment on file for contributions.  If James has an
assignment that only covers his (explicit) contributions to Emacs, he
most certainly can't be held responsible for the accuracy of some
headers in a file he never contributed to Emacs.
