Okay, I've received my assignment forms, but I'm not sure if I got the
right ones.  I checked "yes" to "is there anyone who may have a claim to
the work", since at the very least I used company equipment, and also
even company time for some of the work, so there *definitely* are
grounds to believe that my employer could have some claim to my work.
Not that that's too much of a problem, they seem to be willing to waive
their claim.

The problem is that I now have forms that look very much like individual
assignment forms; they do not address the possible claims of my employer
in any way; the FSF and I are the only parties of the proposed contract.

What do I do now - do I ask the Company Secretary to sign a copyright
waiver a la the very last few paragraphs in the ISO standard COPYING
file?  If I send the signed assignment forms and such a disclaimer
signed by my employer, will that be good enough to cover the legal

While I'm asking this... what is a "blanket assignment"?
