That's exactly the point.  Make first few patches as easy to submit as
possible, and once the contributor is familiar with the process, she
won't be intimidated by a CA so much.

I'm aware of the “20 lines worth of code” limit, because my very first
patch fell into that category.  And I was glad I did not have to sign
the CA.

CA may not be that big of an issue, but for someone who's about to send
her first patch to an unknown group of people it's yet another obstacle
to overcome.
