What means "pristine"? New from the scratch?

Copyright-assigment policy will lead to burocracy. It will discourage people 
and stiffle their creativity. And probably it will shadow reputation of FSF, 
which is to deplore not only for Emacs's sake.

I miss the human maintainer and copyright-notice in the sources. It was always 
nice to read. Maintainer FSF reads terrible.
