I personally don't really see the need for copyright assignments,
unless we foresee the need to enforce the copyright. Instead, a
properly written maximally permissive grant (with the ability to
sublicence) to SPI or some other appropriate body in addition to
licensing the work under the currently understood set of licenses.

Or, if we decide that we won't ever need to relicense, we can just
continue on with proper licensing terms.
