This is not always a sensible. Part of the non disclosure is that I can
not quote the realy good examples (which did a great service to the comunity,
but required TNF signing a contract, not all developers involved).

And you wouldn't want to be part of board (or a CEO in a commercial entitiy)
signing any agreement if you have to take responsibility for all the actions
of all developers, which in turn do not have any liability to your legal
entity. This is all common sense, nothing vile, nothing specatacular
