I think for many people it would be nicer if we can point them to
a web-page than sending them a text form to email.

As for the choice, I think it's best to only present them with the
"assign.future" form first, and leave discussion of alternatives if/when
they find it problematic.

But there is the risk that they end up signing something for "ELPA"
or for their one current project instead of signing for "Emacs" and then
later come to regret it because it forces them to go through the whole
process again.

That's not a web form.
