The CCLA is not strictly required since the ICLA contains the wording “ 
4. You represent that you are legally entitled to grant the above
   license. If your employer(s) has rights to intellectual property
   that you create that includes your Contributions, you represent
   that you have received permission to make Contributions on behalf
   of that employer, that your employer has waived such rights for
   your Contributions to the Foundation, or that your employer has
   executed a separate Corporate CLA with the Foundation.

So the CCLA is just an explicit affirmation of the above.

[A1] The CCLA schedule A can be updated simply by sending email to secretary. Preferably from
the person identified as the contact for the CCLA.
