And I don't see why we should.  What would we gain from this administrative

What we lose is: dealing with people who have the title not doing work,
or people not having the title, doing the work, being irritated by not
having the title.

svn can, with a little effort, demonstrate who is looking after what.

All I see is cost and no benefit.  This isn't an "org chart" kind of
issue IMHO.

In FreeBSD, why delegate responsibility to anyone other than those who
take it by their own initiative?
