hmmm, I'm confused or maybe I just misunderstand what you've said here.

In the definition of "contribution" in section 1 of the CCLA at
http://www.apache.org/licenses/cla-corporate.txt I don't spot any
wording that limits the contribution to just what's listed in the grant
section of the CCLA (schedule B). In fact, it sounds like anything will
be included unless explicitly marked "Not a Contribution."
