Interesting idea, but I don't think it helps, as we have no way of
connecting your CCLA to the statement. So, if you had a boilerplate CCLA
text you asked your employees to sign, we, as the technical community,
would have no way to verify the validity of the statement. That means it
has no basis for existence in our world. It also adds a bunch of
non-useful text into the git commit history.
