If someone has the time to do this and it doesn't cost anything, go ahead.

But don't let it stop or discourage people from doing what's right. The 
Contributor Agreement is pretty clear reading, especially the front page 
matter: http://plone.org/foundation/contributors-agreement/agreement.pdf

People get far too worked up over the What Would A Layer Do question, 
probably in the belief that there is in fact a black-and-white answer 
that they're just not qualified to know. I can understand it coming from 
Americans. They probably have wristbands with that written on them. Less 
so from the Dutch. :)
