If you contribute a package from the start, and then are not
collecting papers, it can never be included without going through the
whole process of collecting papers later.  

That is unfair to both the person contributing the package, but also
to future maintainers the package who would expect that since ELPA is
part Emacs, one could just put that code into Emacs at some point.

Now they have to find any previous contributors, get them assign
copyright, or in the worst case -- rewrite the code.

Compare this to the minor inconvience of getting a nice set of
GNU stickers.
