However, all that doesn't mean it might not be good for TDF to offer developers the choice of 
copyright assignment without requiring it; something that would also be good to offer the estates

developers when those situations arrive. But that is all - an option
should the developer with to exercise it.

IOW, what is needed is a document created by the foundation that is
legally binding in the country that the foundation is located in, that
enables either an individual or an organization to assign the
intellectual property rights of either all of their contributions, or
the contributions that are specifically identified and described in the
document, to the foundation.  This probably would be half a dozen or so
documents, for each type of contribution, and contributor.
