This is a contribution of a significant size, so we would need a
copyright assignment from you before we could accept it.  Would you be
willing to start a legal paperwork rolling, so that we could accept
this and your future contributions?

I'm not sure I understand: does this delete the ITRANS method?  Would
it make sense to leave it, and just add the new one?  And please also
note that lisp/language/indian.el references the malayalam-itrans
method; should that be changed as well?
