Well, anyone can fill out the form.  Then, an Officer can receive the
form on behalf of the Foundation (the preferred recipient for all
forms is the Secretary).  The Incubator PMC still needs to review the
form to ensure it is up to our standards before the code donation can
commence (i.e. that it is the right document, etc, etc.).

The Officer receiving it is not ensuring the legitimacy of the
document - they are just saying, "Yup.  Got it."  The Incubator PMC is
responsible for confirming the content of the document and ensuring
that it's "right."
