Okay, I'll start thinking of maintainership as you describe.  It looks
like a good approach to me.

This leaves another thorny question, of course: what *does* happen
with code that has no stewarding team?  Does it not get bug fixes?
Does Marcus simply get it dumped on his head to sort out?  Maybe
that's the best kind of approach that is possible.
