Or you can just ignore that.  For the purposes of this contribution, the 
important critical part is Schedule B of the document.  Listing people 
in Schedule A is good too, but basically is there to protect those 
individuals by allowing them to prove that the corporation has given 
permission for them to participate in any apache project.

Which is harm :)

Please only send one document that covers the single contribution, 
unless there is some problem which prevents this and requires multiple, 
but I can't see a situation where that is the case.

Yes please provide one for every author of the code contribution.
