We can consider that a CLA is needed for "document committers" as they 
control official (i.e. published) docs, whereas "document contributors" 
are considered like people contributing wiki pages and bugzilla patches, 
and implicitely accept their contributions to be used by document 
committers under the ASL. A way to ensure people don't miss this is a 
checkbox in the registration screen stating "I accept my contributions 
to be used, modified or even trashed by the documentation committers 
according to ASL 2.0".
