It would be madness IMO for Emacs to require legal paperwork from
everyone who at some point participated in some design discussion
here, which later got implemented, just because "design is expressive"
and "email is a medium" that fixes that expressiveness.  As a matter
of fact, this is not currently required, which I interpret as an
agreement with my understanding of the fine line that separates design
ideas from actual code.
