I can't speak for all corporations, but I can speak to the proposals 
that I have dealt with at my corporation.

IBM is fully aware that places like DeveloperWorks and SourceForge 
exist.  The prevalent view is that such places tend to end up being 
fishbowls whereby developers can work and be observed.  By contrast, the 
ASF is viewed as a place to build a diverse and sustainable community.

This discussion, the attendant angst and so called "overhead", are 
recognized as part of the package, i.e., necessary to establish the 
desired diversity and community involvement.
