The ASF is extremely averse with respect to IP management. That's why
companies of all shapes and sizes are comfortable using Apache project
outputs. I'm not part of the legal team. If the community wants to
move towards this kind of model it will need to be run past the legal
team. As I understand it this is not currently accepted practice (but
I may be wrong and if Sam is reading he will correct me).
