The idea is that instead of assigning to RH, contributors could assign

Another possibility is to assign to eCosCentric, and eCosCentric would
make a public commitment to assign to the FSF immediately once everything
is going. That might be easier logistically, but I can understand it if
others here are hesitant about this. But the public commitment may address
When you say "...assign direct to individual maintainers", do you mean
one named person, or the maintainers as a whole? Could eCosCentric
handle the paperwork, but the assignments be to the maintainers as a
whole? That gives a degree of separation from eCosCentric which might
make some people happier.
It either has to be named individuals or eCosCentric. There is no other
legal entity to assign to, and it has to be a legal entity.
