That is required by the US copyright law.  It is not RMS' idea.

BTW, a lot of high profile projects require copyright assignments, for
example X11 or Samba.  There are also companies who require that
(e.g. Sun's OpenOffice, Canonical's Ubuntu, Oracls's MySQL, etc.); I
would actually hesitate to sign such company CAs - they don't guarantee
that the assigned code will stay free.  In contrast the FSF guarantees
this and give you all the reciprocal rights as possible by US law.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
