Whoa - my bad; I got this wrong and the web sites beat us both...

"In the same spirit of an Apache-style process, if an individual has shown
understanding of the project and substantive contribution to the specification,
based on technical merit and understanding of the goals of the work an
invitation may be extended to have that member join the specification Working
Group. On such acceptance the Party is required to sign an agreement that makes
sure they also grant ongoing and consistent licenses to the work."

Done.  The language on the sites is perfect.  The Party in this case is the
individual, and anyone else who lays claim to the IP they produce, so I don't
see any reason not to use the web site language off Envoy & IONA (the two I
just reread.)

Still looking for just the answer to my very last question about the Spec
participation contract, public or private status.
