Does this mean "the FSF has researched the situation, and their lawyers have
determined that the prevailing laws ignore such small contributions", or "the
FSF has set a policy of small contributions being irrelevant"?

After all, the FSF is not the ultimate arbiter.  The legal system is.  And the
FSF doesn't own the Apache 2 license.  That license is approved under OSI

Sorry to pick nits, but if the point of this exercise is to do it by the book,
I just want to make sure we're on the same page. :)
