Also, does this question even make sense?

Neither the SGA not the iCLA "transfers" any rights to the ASF.  We
don't ask for copyright.  We just ask for a license. But it is
non-exclusive.

So if anyone thinks this refers to something that actually requires a
"transfer" of copyright, please speak up, so we can track this down.
