Requiring everybody to sign an ICLA is a bit much, and I would seriously
discourage it.  The ICLA required a two week review from the GC at my
office before I could sign it (with you work for an entity like a
university, IBM, Lucent, etc, where they own everything you do, there is a
lot of hee-hawing to sign an agreement that forces them to allow me to
donate work to somebody else).

That being said, having it signed for the winner should be expected, and I
think it is pretty well spelled out in text we voted on.
