That worked.

No. For non-trivial changes the FSF requires a written (i.e. paper)
copyright assignment. If I would add code from you, you would have the
copyright on that parts of the code. Now if for example the FSF wants
to change the license (say from GPL to LGPL) they would have to get your
permission to do that. Now consider there are dozens of authors and
some may not agree or are simply not anymore reachable. Thus copyright
assignments are the way to go.
