Debian has packages in collab-maint, where any Debian Developer can make 
changes and upload them.  In Debian, this is purely a social convention 
because the project doesn't have ACLs for Debian Developers, but there 
is a strong notion of package ownership despite the lack of technical 

Perhaps Fedora package maintainers could set a flag on their package 
which would grant access to anyone who maintains any other package? 
This way, package maintainers could gradually reduce the need for 
provenpackager privileges (similar to what Debian did with the 
introduction of the Debian Maintainer role, which is also governed by 
package ACLs).
