Given that individual contributions aren't anonymous anyway (what with
SVN logs available), could we have a list posted of the people who've
signed ICLAs? Or, perhaps have that as the default, and make an
exception if there's some weird circumstance where for some reason a
person needs to keep their involvement with Dojo a secret?

We certainly don't want to do anything to discourage corporate
contributions, and it makes sense that a company would want to have
control of the timing of its announcement that it's contributing to
Dojo. But once a company has signed a CCLA and has contributed code,
can't we then safely include their name on a posted list of the ICLAs
and CCLAs we have on file? It'd be great to see Dojo operating as
transparently as is practical.
