Before we go to far with the discussion here, I would first ask all of
the core devs if they really would like to do that.
Without an agreement in place, the code is owned by each contributor
separately. I know of quite a few core devs who are not keen on ceding
their copyright to QGIS.ORG, if the goal is to undermine the GPL
I am also not sure if QGIS.ORG is ready to prepare such an ownership
Personally, I fail to understand what the benefits are, if we go this
route. On the contrary - I think we are risking to loose many core
contributors if we do that.

Devs could cede their previous work to QGIS.org  on an individual basis if they want to. Over time the bulk of the code may naturally become the copyright of QGIS.org  (think version 10 here...)
