An ICLA does not actually change who can contribute, it only makes
things more explicit.  Section 5 of the license has equivalent terms
to the ICLA.  If you cannot sign an ICLA for your contributions then I
don't think you should make those contributions without an ICLA.

As Larry said earlier, "You can grant a license! You just can't obtain
a copyright!"
