You said

"That's fine, they may choose to not sign the copyright agreement. There
is noting wrong with that."

But as I understand it that means they would refuse to accept the patch
irrespective of the important issue (is it technically good). So it
would conceivably put in place a policy that prevents free software
developers from contributing technically good changes to Evolution.

One obvious answer might seem to be to wait until it happens (if it ever
does). I doubt that many people consider it a problem. The question is
whether this should be answered up front once and for all so that
if/when it happens there is not a massive mess at a time it may be too
late to change.
