This strikes me as somewhat odd. 

1. Why not assign it to FSF if one is concerned about the licence?

2. This will make it possible for Helix Gnome to change the licence in
   the future without implicating all the contributors, won't it?

3. If 2. is correct what will happen with the licence in the future if
   Helix Gnome is bought by a larger company?
