I can give you my take:
Contributors will more or less give their free time for no money, so 
they want recognition in exchange. That and legal stuff is what most of 
those rules are about.

Since I am too involved with Groovy I am too biased to comment about 
JavaX, or if it fits for Apache. But I can tell you, that as soon as you 
have to deal with more than a handful of people you know privately 
and/or if people start actually looking at what your stuff does, things 
easily start to get socially complicated.
