Interesting. Well, as far as I know, copyright assignment is more an
issue of project management, not of licensing. What you can do is
clearly state that you will only integrate contributed code with such a
copyright assignment, or parallel private licensing to you under the
ASF. But this is sometimes not appreciated.
