I think the mere act of submitting the patches on our public lists should 
indicate the acceptance of our terms (esp. given the wording in ALv2).  I 
think it's really impractical to have someone submit a patch and then 
reply, "Are you sure you meant to post it?"

The rest of your guidelines look fine to me.

Thanks for taking this on.  -- justin
