I always worry when we short-circuit the details like this: the
opportunity for misunderstandings is there :)

If and only if you fill out schedule B of a CCLA, then the CCLA also
is a software grant as well as an agreement for ongoing contributions.

Corollary - if as part of incubation a company sends in a CCLA
*without* actually filling out schedule B, then importing a large body
of existing code on which that company claims rights could be a bad

I don't think we should spend too much time over-documenting how to
actually use these documents -- in the end the documents themselves
are pretty clear.
