Why this new terminology? I think it'll just lead to confusion, since
the new term is hard to use in casual conversation ("I'm the point of
contact on x in Fedora" feels awkward compared "I'm the owner of x
in Fedora") and people will probably stick to the old one. Maybe
even using "maintainer" + "co-maintainer" might be better, because
in normal circumstances who is the owner and who is the co-maintainer
matters only to the people involved in the package, and is irrelevant
for most uses.
