Note that there is a big difference between "required by dependency" and
"included in an official GNOME release", so there really is no precedent

That said, I can't see any serious problems with the copyright assignment
policies for Evolution. The only worrying thing for me is whether we turn
this into a general precedent for future modules. Let's forget the specifics
of Evolution for a moment, and consider the general case...
