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 [1] on an individual basis if they want to. Over time the bulk of the code may naturally become the copyright of QGIS.org [1] (think version 10 here...)
