I'm not arguing with your point of view, but how does one decide
whether an ICLA is needed?  Our webpage says:

>We require every contributor to fill out the standard Apache
Individual Contributors License Agreement.
>Exception - very small contributions such as fixing spelling errors,
where the content is small enough to not be considered intellectual
property, can be submitted by a contributor as a patch, without an
ICLA on file for that contributor.

Maybe we should change "fixing spelling errors" to something more
descriptive - whatever that is?  Currently I have no good idea of
what's intended here.
