So what does this mean in reverse?: 

Is it ok to add employer copyright headers to ASF source files if the work has
been done under a contract (and under a contributor agreement)? 

Or can / should / must such a copyright mention at least be added to the closes
NOTICE file?

I can see nothing in the ICLA or CCLA that would actually transfer the original
copyright to the ASF and that should mean that it remains with the original
contributor. Yet, it appears (to me) to be common practice that contributions
after the initial donation get a copyright credited to the ASF.
