Maybe it could also be possible for some employees to go through regular
sponsorship and use the regular CLA. I understand that it is not always
possible, sometime redhat wants to hire somebody to work on packages
without going through the fedora formal process, but I think that
@redhat people interested in being part of the fedora community are
likely to be able to go through the fedora process (even though not when
they have just arrived).
