Well, it is needed, even where that devolves to "has all SGA paperwork

and acknowledged?"

That is independent of the IP Clearance. It's the same issue as any
brand new work created here by committers with ICLAs. Nowhere
does the ASF enforce 'code quality' or similar metrics. If it doesn't
build, it's open source, so just reassemble all the pieces.
