Based on my understanding, many people (yourself included) have run into
this problem. Seems to me as though the Apache community doesn't like
this, and forces all incoming developers to change the way they work in
order to better fit the Apache Way. Seems awfully intrusive from a
new-employee standpoint.

It seems to me like it's in Apache's best interest to either
collectively not care about this sort of thing, or help provide a fix on
their side, rather than potentially asking every incoming developer to
change the way they work.

Well, not really -- I think that it's the ICLA and the employment laws
in the US that allow you to continue working on projects after leaving
IBM. I'd be surprised if Apache would not allow people with new email
addresses to participate in projects.
