*Thanks* for the links, Berin. They really helped!

Ok, this clarifies the situation a lot. For example, Section 2 states 
contributors do not transfer *copyright* to Apache, rather, a 
non-exclusive *license* to use, execute, prepare derivative works of, 
and distribute, etc. As programmers/writers/etc., they still retain 
their own right to use (etc.) their works. Seems to me, the same should 
apply for non-committers who contribute patches, whether code or docs...
