I've seen this debated somewhere. I don't remember the answer, but maybe 
it's good to check with the Incubator PMC and ask. For sure it's stupid 
to annotate the source files directly, and nobody is proposing this 
here. As for a separate file with contributors, I find it totally 
reasonable but I seem to recall a discussion saying that attribution at 
the ASF is tracked exclusively in version control logs... I don't 
remember seeing a compelling reason for that anyway.
