In principle, I like the idea.

However, I'm afraid the lawyers won't. Without a reasonably consistent
application of the CA policy, it is likely that we'll get into trouble
with some lawyer at some point.  And obviously a mob branch from which
patches _never_ get merged for lack of CA is not so useful.

So I'd rather keep the barrier to Git write access very low -- filing
out the CA form is not really asking that much I hope.  But again, this
is me wearing purely the "legal" hat. If I could first change global
copyright laws to my liking, my opinion on this would be very different ;-p
