It's not so much about license enforcement. It's about trust and
accountability.  We need to know whom we are working with, whom to
contact if there are questions, who should receive credit for the work,
who is sending consistently good (or maybe bad) contributions, who is
violating the rules should that happen, etc.  All these things matter
for translations just like they do for the rest of the code.
